Typically people associate solar lighting with summer. Yes we agree that’s a popular season. But our Solar Luminaries and Solar Path Lights span the seasons. Just check out these beauties rocking in the snow :) Each piece is totally unique and variations from the pics in size, shape, pattern, and brightness should be expected. They like at least 4 hours of bright, direct Sunlight and fully charge in 8 hours.
Our Solar Luminaries are made from recycled materials, with the same high temp paint that I have been using on my hand painted projecting Light Bulbs for 20 years. It is a water base color that is permanent and weather resistant once cured. I find these glasses at the recycle center at the dump.
Some of our specialty Solar Luminaries like the one pictured below, is made from vintage glass Dessert Dishes/Sundae Glasses reclaimed from my local Landfill, that I hand paint. All are truly unique and beautiful!
When they light up automatically at night time each one creates a one of a kind stained glass effect by projecting the painted colors and images from the painting along with the textured patterns from the glass onto the surface it illuminates!!!
The Solar powered LEDs are sourced from local landfills too, from old yard lights that people threw away when they weren't lighting up anymore. Most of them would have worked again if the rechargeable battery inside was changed but many people don't realize they have batteries even tho they are solar powered so the whole path light gets thrown 'away' batteries and all. I find these solar yard lights at my recycle center at the dump, recycle the batteries, refurbish the solar charging units, often times even rebuilding the circuit boards. I reuse all of the parts from the discarded Solar Lights that I can!
So the only parts of these Luminaries that are not Reclaimed from my local landfills are the Paint and new high quality rechargeable batteries, and sometimes I even replace the whole circuit board with ones that I put together myself on custom designed PCBs!
And although each Solar Luminary created is handmade from refurbished materials. We check each and every light bulb before we ship it to you. Each light fixture is guaranteed for 1 year but they typically last 5-10 years.
