“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 Recycled Glass Butterflies:

    I'm sure the description was correct for these glass butterflies, but upon receiving one, it was larger and heavier than expected. I was thinking it might be a little more delicate. Packaging was great though, in lots of bubble wrap. While heavier than I thought, there are still pieces that could easily get snapped off.

            Comments about Recycled Glass Butterflies:

            With some of these glass products, the glass is very thin. For a butterfingers like me, it's a gamble ordering anything nice like this for others as I'm not sure how breakable the item is. I'm happy to say this piece is beautiful and not delicate to the point where if you breathe on it, it breaks. And it's really well-made.

                I bought this for my mom. It is very pretty, the only negative thing I can say is there is no way to hang it. It has to be placed on a flat surface or inside something.

                            Comments about Recycled Glass Butterflies:

                            When pictured, this looks like such a delicate beautiful little butterfly, but in person the glass is much bulkier and heavier than imagined. (Not heavy in weight but in bulk and thickness.) The colors on the pink one are darker, but possibly will be better when put in sunlight (only viewed indoors so far). Overall the product looks cheaper in person than it did online because of the glass. I probably would not have bought this if I saw it in person first; not because there is anything wrong with it, but because it just isn't waht I was going for. (It is a gift for my mom's birthday and I wanted something that seems high quality, delicate and beautiful, not like this which seems more industrial.)
