Enchanted Forest

Beauty, elegance and heartfelt sentiment are at the root of artist Stephen Kitras latest collection of glass globes. Hand blown of 100% recycled glass, this series features Kitras' signature ability to create a delicate interior trunk within the globe. Vibrant splashes of color add the finishing touch on these one-of-a-kind home accents. Handmade in Canada. Sold individually.

Tree of Remembrance (far left)
Just as tree undergoes changes as it grows from a seedling to maturity, our lives are full of unique and important people and moments that define us as individuals. The Tree of Remembrance encourages us to treasure each of life's moments and cherish the memory of people and places that are near and dear to us - the children, the friends, the parents and the occasions that create the mosaic of our lives.

Tree of Peace (middle left)
The beauty and tranquility of nature in essence captures the meaning of peace. Like a tree growing in harmony with the forest that surrounds it, peace brings with it a message of tolerance, acceptance and compassion.

Tree of Joy (middle right)
Delight in vibrant mix of life's simple pleasures. Like a tree bursting into life after a long winter, spread the joy you feel today with those around you. The Tree of Joy reminds us that performing small acts of kindness can help make the world a more joyful place.

Tree of Love (far right)
There is no greater gift in the world than the gift love. Like a tree, love grows stronger and more beautiful with time. The Tree of Love represents the countless blessings the love brings into our lives.

    Comments about RECYCLED GLASS TREE GLOBES:

    My husband opened his birthday gift and he was shocked when he looked at the glass globe. It was just perfect and it was much better than what the picture shows. It is very classy and just fits our decor so well. I couldn't have picked out a more perfect and unique gift for the very special man he is. Thanks Uncommon Goods!

      Comments about RECYCLED GLASS TREE GLOBES:

      These glass globes are absolutely beautiful and lovely to look at. I just loved them. However, they are large and heavy. Traditional displays won't hold them. I tried to find metal lantern stands and finally gave up because I knew that eventually a grand child would knock them over. So, I'm returning these 6" globes and will be looking for small sized globes that can be displayed more easily.

                    The ornament is larger than expected. May be too large or heavy for most trees, but would look quite good hung in front of a window.

                      I bought two of these beautiful glass globes. One for a friend battling cancer and one as a Christmas gift. The product description should note that these globes are too large and heavy to place on the average Christmas tree. Well-made, decorative globes for the home or workplace.

                              This was an excellent gift. There is a tag that explains the meaning of the piece and a picture of the artist working in his studio. I gave it as a thank you gift, and it was very well received.
