Autumn Magic (Amy Brown design) Lithophane Night Light
First invented in France in 1827, a LITHOPHANE (”Vision In Stone”) is a porcelain engraving that virtually comes alive when illuminated from behind. The image is created by a panel of different thicknesses of translucent, kiln-fired porcelain. A breathtakingly detailed picture in warm sepia tones emarge when lit. These illuminated artworks are so detailed, that they are sometimes mistaken for photographs. THE DARK AREA AT THE BASE OF THE LITHOPHANE IS JUST A SHADOW IN THE PICTURE. IT DOES NOT SHOW WHEN BEING USED.
Our Night Lights are the perfect gift; reasonably priced & nicely gift boxed, including a history of the process and care literature.
