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.

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.

    Has anyone hung their globes outside in temperatures in the teens and twenties? I am not sure if they will crack if they get too cold.

        I bought three of these globes and a display stand for my mother. All three were the start of differnt collections. I loved the messages that came with each - personal and meaningful. I plan to start my own collecting. The globes are very well made. They are beautiful for displaying, especially when the light hits them!

          I bought this for my sister's birthday. It was beautiful, unique and she loved it. We are at an age where we really have everything, but it was a mile marker birthday for her. This hangs in her front window. She didn't have to find a tabletop to display it, or find a place to store it. It's beautiful as the light comes through and it reminds her of me and how much I care for her everyday.
          For those who keep mentioning Xmas trees - this is a big gorgeous glass ornament with a tree inside, not to hang on a tree. It's a family or friendship tree. The unique tree inside is I think the prettiest part.
          The fact it's made from recycled glass by an artisan makes it all the more sweeter.

                    These gifts were stunning and pleased my mother and best friend beyond my expectations. They are larger and heavier than I thought and absolutely stunning! I'm not a "green" shopper, so this fact was a bonus. Giving a gift that is so unique made this a truly special gift!

                        This glass globe was a gift for my mother-in-law. I checked it out before I shipped it to her. It is great quality - fairly heavy, so I'm glad I bought a stand to go with it for her to display. I purchased the family globe, and the way that it is designed truly looks like a tree with a trunk, branches, and leaves. I also like that a card about the artist is included. She loved it!

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Delivery was prompt, and the globe was safely packaged.
