Star Light, Star Bright

Vincent van Gogh"s masterpiece Starry Night offers a breathtaking glimpse of the mysterious wonder in a starlit sky. Glassblower Stephen Kitras uses his own artistry to bring some of van Gogh's magic to life in your own garden. He draws upon the painting's nocturnal palette, and captures the swirling of the paint in textured glass. Within is a solar-powered light that allows the ball's magic to continue to shine once evening falls. Use the included stake to display this glass masterpiece in your garden, along a pathway, or by your front door. 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, 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 - but the plastic stake is flimsy

I received this as a gift, and it is beautiful - looks glorious at night! However, the first time I tried to put it in the ground, the plastic stake it sits on broke in two and was unusable. Uncommon Goods sent me a total replacement, which was great. So, be very careful with the plastic, as the lamp is unusable if it breaks - hopefully the manufacturer will upgrade the quality of the stakes.

I would not buy this product again

I have had this garden stake for three weeks now. Despite my efforts, assuring it is turned on and getting plenty of sun during the day to charge, it does not light up. At first, I thought it may need a few days to charge, however that was not the case. It is beautiful during the day, but disappointing at night.
