Glow-in-the-dark light bulb encased in a solid acrylic brick.
Glow-in-the-dark* pigment trapped inside a real light bulb (just like
the ones you have at home). Then the light bulb is encased in a solid
block of Acrylic resin. The mysterious optical effect is caused by
light diffracting in the tiny space between the glass of the light bulb
and the resin, the space forms when the resin shrinks by a tiny amount
during the production possess. The polished surface gives a jewel like
quality to the object. In a darkened room or at night the Glow Brick
comes to life with a tranquil and subtle glow emanating from the
pigment inside the light bulb.
*The technical term for the
glow-in-the-dark is "photoluminescence" this is a process in which
energy absorbed by a substance is released relatively slowly in the
form of light.
