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 masterfully crafted 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.

Globes come with a plastic hang tag that is designed to be used for hanging the globe, either on the display stand specifically designed for the globe or from a different location. The plastic hang tag may also be replaced with customer's own twine, yarn, or other hanging material.

Sold individually.

“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.

    I purchase this for my daughter in law. I have always known these as witch balls. They are supposed to keep evil spirits away when you hang them in the window. She loved it.

                          I purchased the Friendship globe for a friend that is graduating from law school. I also purchased the hanger and thought she could put it in her new office by a window to be a conversation piece. I gave it 4 stars because, like other reviewers, I was disappointed with the cheap plastic hanger. I will have to purchase a nice ribbon for her to use. I was also a little disppointed with the box. It was described as a nice presentation box but is really just a cheap cardboard box with printing about the artist. Could have been a little more elegant to go with the gift.
