A casual encounter under a lamp post - or fairy lovers trysting beneath a tree? What is revealed will depend on how you choose to display this item.

This is an up-cycled glass coffee mug finding new life as a tea-light holder - the handle is on the opposite side to the lamppost / tree and not really visible in these photos. Unlit, it is a simple scene of a Victorian gentleman encountering a lady near a lamp post. Lit up, however, it reveals a rather more fantastic scene. Which is reality? Maybe both.

The hidden images are dimly visible under normal, indoor lighting, and may be revealed by using a normal, wax tea light, a battery-operated tea light, or ambient lighting from above as in the last photo. Alternatively, place the holder in a position where it is lit from the side rather than above, and hide the images until you choose to make them shown.

The images have been created using thin layers of Fimo. I only have one mug ready for immediate sale, however I have another mug from the set on which the images could be reproduced. Or, if you prefer, I could reproduce it on another piece of glassware, such as a large brandy glass or vase. I am quite happy to do custom orders!

I am prepared to ship overseas - tell me where you are and I'll try to find out accurate postage. Please note that any quoted shipping prices are for single-box packing only - double boxing is safer, but increases the weight and therefore the price.
