Solar Flair

Bring a burst of brilliant color into your home with these splashy sunburst suncatchers. Artist Jim Loewer blows each one by hand from sturdy borosilicate glass, creating their flared form by spinning them. A loop at the top makes them easy to hang in a sunny window, or outside near your favorite garden seat. Handmade in Philadelphia, PA.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Glass artist Jim Loewer is inspired by Flaubert's ironic definition of art: "of all lies, art is the least untrue." But this much is true: his glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error, and he loves the relatively instant gratification that comes with the process. A bit of a renaissance man, Jim has an undergraduate degree in painting, a teaching degree, and a law degree he obtained studying at night while making glass by day. Jim focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.

I couldn't wait to open up the box and see what this looked like. It was just as pretty as the picture. It wasn't exactly the same colors as shown on uncommon goods, but that isn't a bad thing. The sun catcher had the same basic shape. The only thing that might have been a little more helpful, if you're lazy like me, is that it could come with a string to hang it. I will definitely be buying myself one in the future.

I bought two of these as Christmas gifts for two very important people. I put a lot of thought into the choice. I was aware that eack piece could have color variations and such. But I was simply heartbroken when I actually saw them. Both were the color of an old brown beer bottle. The swirls are barely even visable. I'd hardly call this a "variation". It's certainly not a gift fit to offer but it's too close to Christmas to fix this. I'm just stuck.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Sunburst Suncatchers:

        The product is pretty and it's nice that each one is unique. However, it's much more opaque than it appears on the website. I was hoping that because it was a sun catcher it would be a little more translucent. The two that I got were both equally as dark.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The delivery was prompt but the product was broken when it arrived. Customer service was terrific and quickly replaced the broken product. They also expedited the delivery so the replacement arrived in time for the holidays! When the replacement arrived it too was chipped. The packaging of this product needs improvement. Until then, I can't recommend this to a friend.

            What a beautiful piece. Original and one of a kind. Looks great hanging in my east facing window, catching the morning sun.

              She loved it. It is hanging out on her back porch and shows from both the porch and her bedroom. The colors that swirl through the glass are really stunning. I do worry a little about how durable the glass will be but it is pretty thick.
