Sea Glass

Inspired by the swirling sea and the dappled light that waves create underwater, this handmade glass sphere is a captivating candle holder. Hand blown from recycled glass by Stephen Kitras, the blue-green globe makes a soothing centerpiece when lit, and a sun-catching tabletop sculpture unlit during the day. Use only with standard tea lights (not included). Handmade in Canada.

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 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.

It appears more opaque in image and wished it were that way. It's more translucent and therefore not as pretty. Greatly disappointed.

            This is used to add to the room. It adds a touch of elegance and would probably end up being a discussion piece.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery was prompt bit the small glass piece was shattered. It had not been wrapped properly. I contacted the company immediately and you could not have been any more helpful. I sent a picture of the broken item and it was replaced immediately. I was quite impressed.

                      I had no idea how the globe sat. A picture would have been helpful, so I wouldn't have had to return it for being misshaped. I had the globe upside down. Most of the globes I have have the fluted edge at the top.
