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.

Happiness (blue/orange): When you realize that your fulfillment in life comes from all that surrounds you, you've reached a true state of happiness. When we look at a tree full of life swaying in the wind to the rhythm of life, we are reminded of the pure bliss that is happiness.

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.

Sold individually.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Tree Globes - Renewal:

      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.

      Absolutely Beautiful

      Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Glass Tree Globes - Renewal:

      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.
