What makes our nightlights unique and one of a kind?
The images on our nightlights are all original. They come from some of Holly’s artist proofs printed for an exhibition called UnNatural History.
The material used for our nightlights is designed for backlighting. It is a heat-resistant, flexible, film like material. The nightlight images are lit with an incandescent bulb, providing a warm, relaxing glow. Some of the colours in the images take on a more pastel tone when lit. Incandescent lightbulbs are known for providing a warm glow compared with the blue tones found in cool toned LEDs or the green tones in fluorescent lightbulbs.
Replacement bulbs for the nightlights can be found at several different stores or online. They are easy to replace.
Our nightlights feature different colour acrylic backings.
The backings are all laser cut to our specifications. To complement the colours in the images, we had several different colours of acrylic cut.
Mirrored Silver Acrylic Back
The nightlights are colour coordinated with care during assembly. We really like unity within our designs. We take the time to make sure the acrylic backing works well with colours in the image.
Besides aesthetic reasons, using different colour backings ensures each one of our nightlights is unique and one of a kind.
The nightlight bases are available in black or white. The bases feature an on / off switch. The incandescent lightbulbs give each image a warm, relaxing glow. Some colours in the photo become more pastel when lit.
Replacement bulbs are available at a number of retail stores or online shops.
The black and white bases best suit our images and current home design trends.
The Nightlight Image Story
Images for the nightlights came from some of Holly’s artist proofs. She considered the proofs like test strips used in darkroom photography . After awhile it was decided to turn to cut up each work and turn them into nightlights. The images were printed quite large. Each nightlight image is part of a larger photo.
The images were created during a water themed art residency in Pico, Azores. They are a visual study of seaweed and aquatic plant life.
