Perch & Light

Like the feathered friends that visit your back yard, these illuminated garden stakes by glass artist Stephen Kitras add bright beauty to any outdoor space. Each 100% recycled glass bird brings enchantment to your yard, patio, or garden by day and, with the help of the sun's rays and a small solar panel, lights up at night. The sweet, hand-blown birds conceal a light that complements the artist's gestural details and splashes of rich color. 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.

      This little bird light is so cute! It was easy to put together and after a few hours in the sun, the solar charger was able to light the small bulb. The glass bird is so beautiful and I'm happy to have this little fellow in my garden.

      Definitely a lovely gift for your gardening friends.
