You asked and we listened! Inspired by our customers' suggestions, these wrought iron stands are a beautiful way to display artist Stephen Kitras signature glass globes. Simple swirls and a circular base in heavy iron are a lovely complement to the delicate and intricate glass globes. Available in one-globe (at right) or three-globes (at left). Handmade in Canada.

Sold separately.

Please note that globes are meant to be hung with a loop made of anything from ribbon to fishing line. (Using ribbon with complementary color really accents the colors on the globe!) Please also note that direct sunlight and heat can wear out certain types of ribbon - so be sure to replace this as needed.

We visited Stephen Kitras's glassblowing studio in Fergus, Ontario, and made a glass globe of our very own. Visit our blog for the inside scoop.

“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.

Beautiful dipay

I use this product to display the "Tree of Remembrance" that a friend gave me when my husband died in an accident. The two of them make a beautiful statement on my mantle.
