Mothers, Sisters, Family, Friends

Celebrate those dearest to you with these elegant 100% recycled glass globes, handmade in Canada by Stephen Kitras and featuring an interior glass trunk that branches out to support vibrant splashes of color. Each globe is made from shards of glass used for car, home, and office windows. The shards are melted down in a furnace before being blown into beautiful works of art that have come to symbolize family, friendship, and the bonds that bring you together.

Tree of Family: Like the roots of a tree, family gives us the support and love to keep growing no matter how far we branch out as individuals.

Tree of Friendship: Like leaves on a tree, our life is brightened by friends who help define us as the individuals we are. The Tree of Friendship reminds us to cherish each of our friends, the old and the new, as each one adds a unique leaf to our tree of life.

Tree of Sisters: Whether she's your sibling or your closest friend, she nurtures you, supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Tree of Motherhood: A celebration of mothers and the important role they play supporting us through the journey of life.

Tree of Fatherhood: A celebration of fathers and the important role they play guiding us through the journey of life.

Tree of Brothers: Whether he's your sibling or your wingman, he supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Sold individually. Not intended as a tree ornament.

Use the included translucent twine to either hang the globe from the display stand or elsewhere.

“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 UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Tree Globes - Relationships:

    I bought these as a gift for several people and everyone completely enjoyed the product. However, almost a month after I made the purchases, I am still dealing with a billing issue. I was double charged and they have not still corrected the issue. I have been told four times that it would be resolved with no success. I must say that the customer service is lacking and they must not really care about their customers!!! Too bad, because they have some really nice stuff, but after dealing with this mess, I will never use them again!!! Use this company with caution.

        This was a gift for a friend's birthday. She's quickly becoming family to me, so it was important that I get her something from the heart. She's also very much into sustainability and the environment, so the recycled glass was a perfect fit.

              When I ordered this, i thought it would be a regular size glass ball. It was almost twice the size and is still gorgeous! It is hanging in the window and when the sun catches it it just shines.
