Bring a burst of brilliant color into your home with these splashy sunburst suncatchers. Artist Jim Loewer blows each one by hand from sturdy borosilicate glass, creating their flared form by spinning them. A loop at the top makes them easy to hang in a sunny window, or outside near your favorite garden seat. Handmade in Philadelphia, PA.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

Really Enjoy This Suncatcher

Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

I wish this were a little larger, but I really have enjoyed it. The sun does not shine thru it a lot, but it is just so beautiful hanging in the window and draws my attention to it. Would make a wonderful gift or just buy it for yourself. I think this would look good in any window, but we have it hanging in our kitchen window so we see it every day.

      Didn't look like the image on the site, much darker and kind of lop sided. I understand they are each unique but it looked more like a mistake then a finished product.

      Quick shipping! Packaged very securely, very impressed.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

        I got this for my mother who lives in WA State. As I live in NC and have all the sun I thought that she could catch her sun there when it came, in something pretty. She loves it and keeps it in her kitchen window. She actually doesn't have something like this, which is amazing since she has everything. I love this as a gift!

        Not quite as pictured...

        Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

        I ordered a multi-colored sunburt suncatcher as a Christmas present for my mother-in-law to hang in her kitchen window. I realize that each of these suncatchers is hand made, but the one I received was so lopsided and asymmetrical that it looked strange -- more like a beginning glassblower's mistake before he really figured out what he was doing than the work of a professional artist. So, unfortunately, I had to return it.

            I love this unique suncatcher and how the look of the piece changes depending on the time of day and how the sun is hitting it. I plan to buy at least one more as a gift.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

            My husband and I love the colors and design of this multi-colored sun catcher. I thought I wanted something a little larger for our kitchen window, but in the day, the color has enough presence to preclude needing anything bigger. At night, it reads as a plain dark shape...until we get an outside light to shine in on it.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt, and product arrived in great condition. It was packed and protected very well.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

            I wanted to use it as a suncatcher in my bedroom. Unfortunately when I opened the window the wind made the ornament move and it would bang against the upper part of the glass window. I have installed many of these types of ornaments in the past, but this one was partciularly challenging to set up because it did not want to stay face front (as if it has a mind of it's own). I now have to find a new place for it though I really wanted the sun to catch the colors in the glass. Oh well, I will figure something out!
