Having noticed how delicious bread has the power to make people feel happy and warm, Japanese artist and baker Yukiko Morita decided to harness this delicate charm and to let "the delicious light of bread gently illuminate" in the form of bread lamps.

Brilliantly crafted from just-baked artisan breads, each is one of a kind. To create the light within the bread's crust, the inside is hollowed out and kept for use in other recipes, so no crumb goes to waste. Also, if possible, unsold breads are used.

50,000-hour LED lights are carefully placed inside and the bread is coated with an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal resin to protect and seal the lamp for years to come. All products are made at Yukiko's workshop in Japan. As she says, "The more we understand bread, all the more we fall in love with bread."

Yukiko's Croissant Light is the perfect embodiment of France's most famous pastry with its gentle glow that can only be described as rich and buttery in hue. Because only real croissants are used to make this lamp, it is her most challenging to produce, but the results are worth it - a delicate expression of light that can only be experienced by using freshly baked croissants.

Materials: Bread flour, cake flour, salt, yeast, LED lights, battery power supply: AA battery x 1 (not included - approx. 50 hours); LED lifetime: approx. 50,000 hours. 5” long x 3-4” wide.
