Night lights galore!

I make these leaf night lights. Have made them for years.  They are one of my big sellers up in the mountains.  Until this year.  This has been a challenging year for sales anywhere but especially through the little local galleries that carry my work.  And I have been focused on my Etsy shop mostly and let the night lights coast. I mean, if they weren't selling no reason to make more, right?

This is what they look like finished
That being said, this week I had 2 galleries call me and ask for more night lights. Really, 2 within 2 days of each other!  I had a few finished ones in the studio but I need more.  So I'm off to the mountains today with what I have and the promise of having more in a couple of weeks. I guess when it rains it pours.

This is how they start out

I use maple and oak leaf cookie cutters

I don't use the cookie cutters for anything but clay work, I swear!

I'll let you know how they turn out!


  1. Oh these are neat Julie! It's good to have work and stay busy. I can't wait to see these finished! The one in the top photo seriously looks like a real leaf. That is art!!!
