Ring of Light

Warm hues of color dance across your room when the sun shines through the rings of this suncatcher. Handmade in Philadelphia by Jim Loewer, each glass suncatcher is unique in its colors and organic concentric rings. Hang it in a window, use it as an artistic touch hanging anywhere else or add to the rainbow of bouncing light and display them all in a group. Handmade of borosilicate glass in Philadelphia.

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.

I want to thank Jim Loewer for this beautiful piece of art. I had seen a magazine article about these suncatchers and intended to research them sometime; then I came across the very item at UncommonGoods. I am in love with the design, colors, size, and glass quality. The suncatcher actually catches the setting sun from my dining room window where it is hanging. This is a perfect piece.

I fell in love with this suncatcher in the catalog & had to have it. The reviews made it sound amazing & I dreamed of bouncing colors around my house once I hung in it a sunny, FL window. When it arrived, I was disappointed. True, it is very large (@ 8") but the colors were much muddier than I expected and it's so think, there's no streaming of the sun through them. Also, the red, green & royal blue that seem so evident in the catalog are barely noticeable in the actual piece. A lot of it looks black and/or gray :( There is also no cord or ribbon for it to hang from. Not a big thing, but that surprised me.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Bullseye Suncatcher:

      I thought this would be a craftman item like hand blown wine glasses but it looks like resin, not glass, and it's larger than a salad plate. I am so disappointed I showed my husband to see if he agreed we should return it instead of surprising him for Valentine's Day.

                      I bought this to be used inside and its probably best for outside- it was much heavier and thicker than I was expecting. It seemed a little cheap to me.
