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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

    I couldn't wait to open up the box and see what this looked like. It was just as pretty as the picture. It wasn't exactly the same colors as shown on uncommon goods, but that isn't a bad thing. The sun catcher had the same basic shape. The only thing that might have been a little more helpful, if you're lazy like me, is that it could come with a string to hang it. I will definitely be buying myself one in the future.

    Pretty but not loving it.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

      The product is pretty and it's nice that each one is unique. However, it's much more opaque than it appears on the website. I was hoping that because it was a sun catcher it would be a little more translucent. The two that I got were both equally as dark.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery was prompt but the product was broken when it arrived. Customer service was terrific and quickly replaced the broken product. They also expedited the delivery so the replacement arrived in time for the holidays! When the replacement arrived it too was chipped. The packaging of this product needs improvement. Until then, I can't recommend this to a friend.

          What a beautiful piece. Original and one of a kind. Looks great hanging in my east facing window, catching the morning sun.

          Two Muddy Christmas Gifts

          By 

          from New York via Dallas

          Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

          I bought two of these as Christmas gifts for two very important people. I put a lot of thought into the choice. I was aware that eack piece could have color variations and such. But I was simply heartbroken when I actually saw them. Both were the color of an old brown beer bottle. The swirls are barely even visable. I'd hardly call this a "variation". It's certainly not a gift fit to offer but it's too close to Christmas to fix this. I'm just stuck.

            She loved it. It is hanging out on her back porch and shows from both the porch and her bedroom. The colors that swirl through the glass are really stunning. I do worry a little about how durable the glass will be but it is pretty thick.

              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.

                    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!
