Swaying In the Breeze
The new fused-glass process allows Switchables to create nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered, as are most Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel. Most new Switchable designs will use the fused process.
The Birch Trees design will make you think of early evening in the north woods. The background might look a little different than the one pictured.
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.
Are you curious...?
Birches are called "the watchful tree" because of the eye-like markings on their bark. Related to beeches and alders, birch trees are found in most temperate climates. They're called a "pioneer species" because they like to colonize open lands, such as after a fire. The hard wood is difficult to work with hand tools and often ends up in plywood, and it makes good firewood, too. But birch is best known for its easily-worked, water-resistant bark, which has functioned in place of paper or skins since prehistoric times -- most famously as the covering for birchbark canoes.
