The Flowers of Kindness

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.

Thinking of You (on left) evokes a quiet mood with rich, blue flowers the color of a deep reflective pool.

Thanks (on right) is filled with joyful energy, displaying flowers reminiscent of sunflowers or Black-eyed Susans.

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.

Stephen Kitras

Stephen Kitras began work as a glass blower in 1988. He worked alone for five years handling all the production and administrative tasks. He and his wife then shipped the product from their dining room table.

In 1994 Kitras Art Glass was formed with Stephen's wife Elke as a partner in the corporation. In this year the single most important factor in the company's growth was the start of exports to the United States.

By 2001 the company had expanded to over 40 employees and a new facility was built to accomodate the increased production demands. Stephen continues to handle all the new product development and oversees the training of staff.

In 1999 the company suffered the loss of Elke Kitras to Leukemia, but the vision that she and Stephen developed for the company continues to thrive. It is the mission of Kitras Art Glass to design and produce beautiful glass objects for the enjoyment of the general public. It is the company's belief that beautiful things enhance the enjoyment of everyday life. When surrounded by beauty the spirit is uplifted. The company also believes that beautiful objects should be affordable, not only for the elite. collection
