The light jar [Saturday 11th May 2013 at 9:55 pm]

This is one of a pair of solar jars that sits on a table on my balcony. There's something about the stained glass-like design and the mix of colours that appeals to me...

That is beautiful! I had never heard of sunjars before (as an domestic ornament, that is; obviously I'm aware of garden solar lights) and very much like the idea of choosing such a beautiful bowl as the container. Did you make yours or buy it ready-made?

Bought ready-made from Lakeland Plastics - it's this one. I picked up a bronze one at the same time, but I prefer the blue/green one. I also got given an actual sun jar as a present a few years back, but that one ended up getting some moisture trapped in the lid and needs repair (the PCB delaminated itself!).
