Catch the Wave
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 Switchables designs represent real objects; the fusion process encourages designers to explore more abstract styles. Most new Switchable designs will use the fused process.
The Blue Swirl's riot of blues and whites were recently redesigned to look more like a breaking wave without losing the abstract pointillism of the original design.
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sorry, we are permanently sold out -- clicking that link will take you away from our store). 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.
Are you curious...?
Georges Seurat branched out from Impressionism to create pointillism in 1886. Originally a derogatory term, pointillism just means building up an image from small dots of color. The technique seems obvious to a generation that grew up with images made of pixels (as well as to earlier generations who were raised on comic books and newspaper photos), but it was a radical new vision in its day.
