What a Wonderful Swirl

Just like flowers need the sunlight to bloom, so too do these plantable, 100% recycled glass pieces by Canadian glass artist Stephen Kitras. With the help of the sun's rays, these vibrant swirled spheres can bring enchantment to your yard, patio, or garden day and night. Each elegant, hand-blown orb conceals a LED light that illuminates the artist's serpentine strokes of rich color even under a veil of darkness. Handmade in Canada.Sold Individually.

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
