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.

Sold separately.

“Why glass? Compared to other media I've worked in, such as iron and ceramic, glass is immediate and responds right away to any design decisions that I make.”

The mantra "when surrounded by beauty, the spirit is uplifted" embodies the mission of Kitras Art Glass. Stephen Kitras began work as a glassblower in 1988, and in 1994 he formed Kitras Art Glass with his wife and partner Elke. By 2001 the company had expanded to over 40 employees and a new facility was built to accommodate the increased production demands.

Sadly, 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 Stephen's goal is to design and produce beautiful and affordable glass art objects to enhance the lives of others.

      Comments about Blossom Balls: Thinking Of You & Thanks:

      Mom has everything - so buying gifts for her is difficult. She loves her garden and has the ultimate "green thumb" when it comes to plants.
      Uncommon Goods has become my "go-to" gift site especially for the person-who-has-everything. I saw these beautiful globes and thought they would be perfect for mom. She could hang them and it would be a great addition to the many plants and flowers she has in her home.
      My only regret was not being able to actually see it in person. I ordered it and shipped it to her directly. When she got it, she loved it and claimed that it was beautiful and that she had not ever seen anything quite like it.
      Yey! Keep up the good work, U.G. - I need something for her come Christmas! ;-)

          in your site you're showing the two balls together, but price is only for one ball!!. i had a long discussion with your help center, which in end accepted to take responsbility and reduce the fee for delivery. For this i'm thanking you. but still think the information in your site is misleading. Also here you're showing the two balls together, which shows they're sells in pairs.

              I purchased these to hang in front of windows as sun catchers because I love floswers. They are really beautiful and unique. The only negative aspect is the price is a little on the high side but I still would order another.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery of the items was very quick. They are glass so I was a little worried about the shipping but they arrived just fine and were packaged up very well.

                  A present for former wife. The name of the glass ornament and the image of forget-me-not flowers was most appropriate.

                  I bought this for my mother and father for Christmas. I was looking for something to remind them that they are always on my mind even though we live far apart. This globe was titled "Thinking of You" so I thought it would be perfect. We also had received an ornament similar to this so I thought it would be pretty. It is so much larger than I was expecting! I didn't look at the size and assumed it was a smaller round ornament but it is quite large. This makes it perfect for displaying all year round! The "art" of the flowers inside is beautiful. I can't wait til they open it on Christmas!
