Colorful Journeys

Celebrate the journeys that inspire us to love, grow and move forward, with Stephen Kitras' mesmerizing, recycled glass orbs. Flush with an inner trunk and budding branches, their vibrant canopies catch light and cast a dance of color to inspire your next great adventure. Hand-blown in Canada. Not intended as a tree ornament.

Rebirth (green/white): Whether we overcome a challenge ready to start over or push forward with a renewed strength, it marks an exciting, new beginning... Just as a tree goes through cycles of death and then rebirth so do we, each time growing stronger.

Creativity (purple/blue): By looking to nature we can find inspiration to create great art, make big decisions and move forward in new directions. The tree of creativity reminds us to think creatively to break down barriers and reach for new heights.

Passion (red/orange): Passion drives us to reach for new heights, champion causes and be close to the ones we love. The tree of passion reminds us to find our passions, as they bring purpose and abundance to our lives.

“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 received this as a gift from my husband and children for Christmas last year. I have it hanging on a of ribbon (securely tied) to my living room curtain rod. The globe beautifully catches the light (even on dreary days).

        I gave this as a gift to my long-term therapist. I gave her the rebirth version which is gorgeous and represents the gift that she gives to me and to all of her clients. She loved it and I was very happy to give a gift with both visual and sentimental appeal. I have purchased these globes in different varieties in the past for members of my family and they have always been a hit. They are lovely hung in a window where sunlight comes through.

          Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Tree Globes - Renewal:

          I purchased this thinking it would be a nice ornament for my friend's first Christmas tree. However, the "ornament" is WAY too big to go on a Christmas tree and too heavy to be supported by any tree branches. Not what I wanted at all, returning.

              I am giving 4 of the lovely tree gazing balls as goodbye gifts. We are moving and will likely not see our friends often. The two I have given so far brought such joy. The recipients loved the meaning and beauty of theses gifts. Two more to give and I can't wait to share the experience. It is not often one can find a gift of this quality and sentiment.

              I purchased the "Happiness" globe for my mom. She has it displayed in her living room where it makes a beautiful show. The globe was bigger than expected which was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend purchasing the stand with the globe since it is larger and heavier than most decorative globes.

              I bought 2. One for my mom and one for my girlfriends mom. Both were moved to tears. Later visits to them show the prominent display each of them use to show off their globe. Could not have done better. RM

                This is used for display purposes. It was given as a gift and has sentimental value as well as a personal message along with it. The Tree Globe looks great and fits appropriately with the stand I purchased for it. It brightens up the room with some color and is aesthetically pleasing.
