Enchanted Forest

Beauty, elegance and heartfelt sentiment are at the root of artist Stephen Kitras latest collection of glass globes. Hand blown of 100% recycled glass, this series features Kitras' signature ability to create a delicate interior trunk within the globe. Vibrant splashes of color add the finishing touch on these one-of-a-kind home accents. Handmade in Canada.

Tree of Remembrance (far left)
Just as tree undergoes changes as it grows from a seedling to maturity, our lives are full of unique and important people and moments that define us as individuals. The Tree of Remembrance encourages us to treasure each of life's moments and cherish the memory of people and places that are near and dear to us - the children, the friends, the parents and the occasions that create the mosaic of our lives.

Tree of Peace (middle left)
The beauty and tranquility of nature in essence captures the meaning of peace. Like a tree growing in harmony with the forest that surrounds it, peace brings with it a message of tolerance, acceptance and compassion.

Tree of Joy (middle right)
Delight in vibrant mix of life's simple pleasures. Like a tree bursting into life after a long winter, spread the joy you feel today with those around you. The Tree of Joy reminds us that performing small acts of kindness can help make the world a more joyful place.

Tree of Love (far right)
There is no greater gift in the world than the gift love. Like a tree, love grows stronger and more beautiful with time. The Tree of Love represents the countless blessings the love brings into our lives.

“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.

      I purchased these "Remembrance"Themed globes for friends who recently lost a child/grandchild. I waited until a month after the loss to let these families know that they are in our thoughts, and felt that this was a beautiful way of expressing it.

        I bought this tree of life for a friend. She was very touched by the gift and the symbolism of the tree of life I will not share our entire story as that is private between her and I. But she was very touched by the beauty of it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        You took such care in the packing of the glass globe. Short of it being dropped out of a second story window or being run over by a truck It was protected. Thank you so much for going to such effort to protect this beautiful glass masterpiece

                      I ordered six and gave as them as gifts in memory of a very special friend that we lost a year ago. The ornaments were larger than expected (a nice surprise)and each design was a little unique. The recipients were very pleased.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Prompt delivery and very well packaged. I checked each for breakage upon arrival and they were all in perfect condition.
