Birds Around the Globe

Inspired by the natural beauty of two beloved birds—the peacock and the parrot—Stephen Kitras' handmade, 100% recycled glass globes are eye-catching ornaments for any space.

The peacock ornament captures the gorgeous grace of a peacock's plumage—used for centuries to decorate homes and in sacred ceremonies to bring good luck and love. Hang in a sunny window and watch the wispy lines dance around, inviting serenity and positive energy.

The parrot ornament reflects the vibrant kaleidoscope of color associated with the tropical birds' plumage. Hang it in a spot that could use an exotic splash of sun-soaked color.

Each globe is handmade in Canada by Stephen Kitras.

“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.

    When I got and opened mine in the mail, it turned out bigger than I expected! That wasn't a bad thing though.

    One problem that I did have was than I ordered the peacock one, but instead got the other (more colorful) ball. When I gave to my friend though, she didn't mind.

          It was larger than I thought, but lovely. You should have diameter listed. Maybe it was but I didn't see it.
