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.

“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.
