Comments about BULL'S-EYE GLASS SUNCATCHER:

I am a big fan of punches of color and this product hits the mark! My favorite piece of artwork is Kandinsky's "Squares With Concentric Rings" and these remind me of that simple, yet bold art. I have my bull's- eye glass sun catcher in my kitchen window and as the sun rises and sets the colors in my piece express themselves in a different way. Everything about this product makes me happy- I just wish I had more!

      Comments about BULL'S-EYE GLASS SUNCATCHER:

      It is a nice product but not very see thru for a glass product. I thought it would be more of a suncatcher type product. I liked it but may not order another for this reason.
      I'm not sure i'd suggest this to a frined simply because there are other choices that will shine more

      Service and delivery comments:

      the package came in a timley fashion, even considering the holidays. It was well packaged

        Comments about BULL'S-EYE GLASS SUNCATCHER:

        i bought this as a gift for my mom for Christmas. She is a bit eccentric and loves creativity, but I always have a hard time finding just the right thing for her because she's also very picky. She loves unique finds and I think this will be perfect. Not only is this product stunning but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived to find that it's also very sturdy. i was worried that these would be thin and delicate...but in fact, the glass is pretty thick and doesn't seem very breakable...which I know my mom will appreciate.

        It's not christmas yet so she hasn't opened it yet...but thus far, i'm really pleased with the product. i bought three to give to her b/c i think they look nicer as a group as opposed to just one.

        This suncatcher makes a good gift someone who just bought a new home, or artist-types, casual decor lovers or someone who wants a splash of color in their room. I just thought the price was a little too steep for what it is.

            Beautiful handmade suncatcher. The only criticism I have is that of others: I would have liked to be able to choose the colors.

            It didn't have a original quality to it.
            It was a bit smaller then I had wanted.
            I wanted it to be more delicate.
