Midnight Moon Lithophane Night Light
Midnight Moon Lithophane Night Light - handcrafted in Irvine, CA Intricately detailed, these beautiful night lights are lithophanes. Invented in France in 1827, the lithophane is a porcelain engraving that 'comes alive' when lit from behind. To create a lithophane, the design is first carved in wax, on a light table to help the artist see the image as he/she works. A mold is made from the carving, then porcelain is cast into the mold. Dried, finished by hand, then fired in a kiln at 2300 F, each piece is then carefully examined. The are truly magical works of art! A beautiful gift for self or others.
