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

Tree of Remembrance
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
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 Love

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.

Tree of Happiness
When you realize that your fulfillment in life comes from all that surrounds you, you've reached a true state of happiness. When we look at a tree full of life swaying in the wind to the rhythm of life, we are reminded of the pure bliss that is happiness.

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.

“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?

5

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.
