Globe of Prosperity

Handmade by Canadian artist Stephen Kitras, these spectacular globes are hand-blown out of resplendent recycled glass tinted in a kaleidoscopic array of colors. By using his singular process, the artist is able to suspend liquid threads of glass as they furiously lap against the circumference of his spherical pieces, giving the impression that time stops as the glass cools. On sunny days, these generously sized globes filter the suns rays and cast vibrant, dappled reflections across spaces. Each stunning piece shines whether it's placed in a well-lit spot in your home, or it's perched in your garden. Globes can be placed on the sturdy black, powder-coated stand provided. Handmade in Canada.
