Eternal Bloom

Flowers are such a special gift because their delicate beauty is so fleeting. Artist Stephen Kitras captures that special magic in a more permanent form by creating these ethereal 100% recycled glass globes, containing impossibly slender green stems leading up to floral splashes of color. As with flowers, each combination of color and pattern conveys a special meaning to their recipient.

Just Because (on left) is full of rambunctious reds and yellows, for no other reason than the pleasure of spreading happiness.

Memory (on right) evokes reverent stillness with its blossoms of the palest blue.

Each hand-blown ball has a sturdy loop at the top for hanging. Whether displayed in a window, or outside in a garden, these blossoms will be a shining reminder of your kind thoughts all year round.

Sold separately.

“Why glass? Compared to other media I've worked in, such as iron and ceramic, glass is immediate and responds right away to any design decisions that I make.”

The mantra "when surrounded by beauty, the spirit is uplifted" embodies the mission of Kitras Art Glass. Stephen Kitras began work as a glassblower in 1988, and in 1994 he formed Kitras Art Glass with his wife and partner Elke. By 2001 the company had expanded to over 40 employees and a new facility was built to accommodate the increased production demands.

Sadly, 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 Stephen's goal is to design and produce beautiful and affordable glass art objects to enhance the lives of others.

    Ordered "Just Because" for my sister's birthday. She uses accents of red in her sunroom and this beautiful, large glass ball looks just right. I knew she would love it. Used a plant hanger above the window to show it off. So happy I saw it in the catalog.

                    This was a gift for my mother for Mother's Day to symbolize "Memory" of my brother who died tragically last December. She cried when she got it because of the memories and also how beautiful it is. She had looked at these before and was delighted by this gift stating this one was better than the ones she'd seen before. Thank you for such a beautiful product!
