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.

Stephen Kitras

Stephen Kitras began work as a glass blower in 1988. He worked alone for five years handling all the production and administrative tasks. He and his wife then shipped the product from their dining room table.

In 1994 Kitras Art Glass was formed with Stephen's wife Elke as a partner in the corporation. In this year the single most important factor in the company's growth was the start of exports to the United States.

By 2001 the company had expanded to over 40 employees and a new facility was built to accomodate the increased production demands. Stephen continues to handle all the new product development and oversees the training of staff.

In 1999 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 the mission of Kitras Art Glass to design and produce beautiful glass objects for the enjoyment of the general public. It is the company's belief that beautiful things enhance the enjoyment of everyday life. When surrounded by beauty the spirit is uplifted. The company also believes that beautiful objects should be affordable, not only for the elite. collection
