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 masterfully crafted 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.

Sold individually. Not intended as a tree ornament.

Globes come with a plastic hang tag that is designed to be used for hanging the globe, either on the display stand specifically designed for the globe or from a different location. The plastic hang tag may also be replaced with customer's own twine, yarn, or other hanging material.

      We purchased the "Family" tree globe for each of our mothers as our wedding presents to them. They are beautiful and so unique; you see something different at each angle. Each a bit different in their own way. Our mothers loved them and especially loved the sentiment card that went along with them.

        Each year our family of 9 descend on our niece for a family reunion which she has most graciously hosted each year. I love to give her a hostess gift which reflects the bond our family enjoys and her part in making a get-together possible. This beautiful glass ball suits the purpose! She will receive it the first weekend in October and I'm pretty sure she will love it!

            My husband and I gave the "Family Tree" blown glass ball to my sister-in-law on her 60th birthday. She loved it - as well as the meaning behind it - as did everyone in the room. The artist did an incredible job!

                I purchased a tree globe that said it was back ordered. It arrived earlier than expected. This was my first purchase from Uncommon goods, everything from the descriptions of the product, checking out, shipping, and quality was text book perfect! Refreshing to have a great experience with online shopping!

                  I gave this gorgeous globe to my mother as a gift. It now hangs in her bedroom window and adds a magical quality to the sunlight! She loves it and says she woukd like to collect them all I couldnt have asked for a better quality product. The glass is obviously well crafted, even the loop
                  you hang it from is thick and sturdy! I also love that the glass is recycled, it makes me feel like its made up of different stories (depending on where each glass piece came from). I will certainly be helling my mother add to her collection
