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.
