Mothers, Sisters, Family, Friends

Celebrate those dearest to you with these elegant 100% recycled glass globes, handmade in Canada by Stephen Kitras and featuring an interior glass trunk that branches out to support vibrant splashes of color. Each globe is made from shards of glass used for car, home, and office windows. The shards are melted down in a furnace before being blown into beautiful works of art that have come to symbolize family, friendship, and the bonds that bring you together.

Tree of Family: Like the roots of a tree, family gives us the support and love to keep growing no matter how far we branch out as individuals.

Tree of Friendship: Like leaves on a tree, our life is brightened by friends who help define us as the individuals we are. The Tree of Friendship reminds us to cherish each of our friends, the old and the new, as each one adds a unique leaf to our tree of life.

Tree of Sisters: Whether she's your sibling or your closest friend, she nurtures you, supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Tree of Motherhood: A celebration of mothers and the important role they play supporting us through the journey of life.

Tree of Fatherhood: A celebration of fathers and the important role they play guiding us through the journey of life.

Tree of Brothers: Whether he's your sibling or your wingman, he supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Sold individually. Not intended as a tree ornament.

Use your own sturdy wire, fishing wire, or ribbon to hang the globe from the display stand or elsewhere.

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.

Sold individually.

“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, Elke. By 2001 the company had expanded to over 40 employees and a new facility. It is Stephen's goal is to design and produce affordable glass art objects to enhance the lives of others. "I think it’s good to make beautiful things and celebrate beautiful moments," he says. "They happen every day, all around us."

Beautiful Globe


It should come with a stand/holder. The holder should be relative to the size of the gift (not too large) & offered in various attractive non-tarnishing metals.

Why send flowers?


This was a perfect way of providing those who have lost loved ones with a beautiful remembrance piece that will last a lifetime. Our friends have sent quick notes of how when they see it they smile and think of one of the many great memories they have. We used to send stars. This is so much more personal. I highly recommend it.

Positively Beautiful


Did the two largeer ones for Mother's Day and Fathers Day and will add the smaller ones for birthday months of each grandchild. My daughter in law is hanging each one individually in a macrame and hanging in a window in the kitchen. Almost a macrame curtain.

Perfect gift


This was the perfect gift for a student I had in the 7th grade that was graduating from a university with a masters degree.



I just love the tree globes!


This product when used with the stand is stunning. Put in a area where it can be seen but not knocked over.

I have bought multiples of these


I have bought a few of these glass balls as gifts. One at Christmas got a big wow. We will see how the mother's day one's go. A unique item, but pretty costly.
