Flowers Are Forever

Flowers are such a special gift because their delicate beauty is so fleeting. Artist Stephen Kitras captures that special magic in a more permanent form by creating these ethereal glass globes, containing impossibly slender green stems leading up to floral splashes of color. As with flowers, each combination of color and pattern conveys a special meaning to their recipient.

Friendship (on left) is decorated with the pure white petals and sunny yellow interior of summer daisies.

Romance (on right) has clusters of flowers colored with the first rosy blush of love.

Each hand-blown ball has a sturdy loop at the top for hanging. Whether displayed in a window, or outside in a garden, these blossoms will be a shining reminder of your kind thoughts all year round. Hand-blown in Canada.

Sold separately.

      These are the most beautiful witch balls you'll ever find. I bought this as a thank you gift for my sister, a professional landscaper. The flowers in the glass itself made this the perfect gift for her!

          Comments about BLOSSOM BALLS: FRIENDSHIP & ROMANCE:

          This is a gorgeous, high quality gift for any special person in your life. I bought a Friendship one for a long-time friend and I am very glad I did. This is on the large side, as is stated a couple of times, but even so I was still a little surprised about how large it truly is. Still a beautiful piece and with the matching stand it will make a very nice birthday gift.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Very fast shipping, well packaged.
