Metamorphosis In Stained Glass
A cheerful yellow butterfly silhouette contrasts with a gray-and-white chevron background in this Switchables night light cover.
The fused-glass process enables Switchables to create a new generation of nightlight covers like none you've ever seen before. Instead of being folded and soldered like traditional Switchables covers, these pieces of glass are fused together with flash heat for more brilliant colors and intricate designs with no metal borders. Bits and strips of glass are bonded to a slightly curved, clear or colored background panel.
You can identify a fused-glass Switchables cover by its "SF" item number. Traditional Switchables start with "SW". This design replaces the old "Blue Butterfly SW067."
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...?
What's the difference between a butterfly and a moth? It depends on whom you ask. Taxonomically, they're all one big happy family (along with the skippers). Taxonomists like to argue over details, and even over whether the distinction is meaningful at all, because taxonomists need excitement in their jobs, too. But if you follow these guidelines you'll be right most of the time: Butterflies are colorful and active during the day; they have round clubs on the ends of their antennae; they hold their wings vertically when they rest; they have long, thin bodies; and they emerge from pupae. Moths are duller and fly mostly at night; they have feathery antennae; they rest with their wings flat against their chubby fuzzy bodies; and they emerge from cocoons. There are also some behavioral rules (and exceptions to most of them) that are of interest mostly to argumentative taxonomists.
