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.

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.

            I ordered six and gave as them as gifts in memory of a very special friend that we lost a year ago. The ornaments were larger than expected (a nice surprise)and each design was a little unique. The recipients were very pleased.

              It's a beautiful piece of art. I buy it for my clients when someone very close to them they love has passed. The response I get from them is so touching. Thank you.

                My siblings and I celebrate my father's birthday every year, even though he is no longer here. Each year I try to give them something beautiful and unique to honor my dad. These large glass lobes were perfect for this.
