Sun Fish

A rainbow of colors rushes and swims vibrantly within this hand-blown recycled glass fish by Canadian artist Stephen Kitras. Thick, polished glass with subtle indentations suggests eyes, lips, scales and fins, while rich purple flows into a whirlpool of jewel-toned blues, oranges, pinks, yellows and greens. This vibrant mosaic is made even more stunning when set in front of a window, the rays of the sun illuminating the translucent colors to their full brilliance. Handmade in Canada.

    Granda loved the glass fish. Put it on her windowpane and when the light hits it, it lights up the room. Would definitely recommend.

      This is a unique gift that you won't find in local malls. It adds to our collection of high quality glass sculpture.

        Comments about HAND BLOWN RECYCLED GLASS FISH:

        Product was every bit as good as the website showed it to be. I purchased for my 90 year old Gran and I'm sure she will find if visually appealing and it will brighten many a day for her! The company card included with the product was a plus for me - gave me a little insight into the maker of this wonderful work of art!

          I expected this product to be bright and colorful as displayed, however it does not get that beautiful unless you are literally holding it up to a light or the sun. Still a nice gift.

                    It looks spectacular in a window and is a perfect gift for anyone who enjoys things that are handmade, or are conscious of enjoying recycled materials. A terrific gift for a fisherman!

                        I bought this as a birthday present for my nature-loving mom. She lives in Florida and really enjoys the ocean and especially colorful saltwater fish. When I saw this great fish, I knew that it would be perfect - and it was!

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Quick, efficient shipping. Arrived on time and was well packed and nicely gift packaged.

                          My mother collects colored glass, and this was a great unique mother's day present. It's visually pleasing both in the sun and in the artificial light.
