Are You an Earth or a Fire?

Are you inspired by water's powerful movement? Or earth's ability to lay roots? Celebrate the symbolism of nature's elements with Stephen Kitras' elegant 100% recycled glass globes. Made from melted down shards of glass used for car, home, and office windows, each is blown into beautiful works of art featuring vibrant splashes of color inspired by the elements. Handblown in Canada.

Fire: Alive with new ideas and new opportunities, fire finds the spark of one's inner intention and drive.

Water: With powerful movement, water links us together to achieve what one could not accomplish alone.

Earth: Where we lay our roots, earth moves through cycles of life and re-birth, adapting to adversity and seeking solid ground.

Air: A reminder there is more to the world than what's visible, air moves things that are stuck and ushers in new beginnings.

“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.

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.
