"Lithophane" Dolphin Translucent Porcelain Night Light

Regular price $39.99 USD Sale $85.00 USD

This Lithophane Dolphin Translucent Procelein Night Light by artist David Delamare is hand crafted in the U.S.A.
First invented in France in 1827, a Lithophane ("Vision In Stone") is a porcelain engraving that virtually comes alive when illuminated from behind. A breathtakingly detailed picture in warm sepia emerges when light passes through the different thickness of the porcelain panel. These illuminated artworks are so detailed that they are sometimes mistaken for photographs!
To create a Lithophane, the design is first carved in wax, using a light table as guide to help our artist see the image as he works. A mold is made from the carving, and then porcelain is pressed into the mold. The dried porcelain is finished by hand and high fired in a kiln to 2300oF, and then each piece is inspected carefully under a light. This high temperature firing makes the porcelain nonporous, durable and beautifully translucent. The gradual transition from thick to thin produces a truly amazing range of delicate shadings. Each Lithophane is a magical work of art, which casts a gentle spell on all those who behold it!
We now reintroduce this art form to you.
Handcrafted translucent curved porcelain, 5 inches H.
