Mothers, Sisters, Family, Friends

Celebrate those dearest to you with these elegant 100% recycled glass globes, handmade in Canada by Stephen Kitras and featuring an interior glass trunk that branches out to support vibrant splashes of color. Each globe is made from shards of glass used for car, home, and office windows. The shards are melted down in a furnace before being blown into beautiful works of art that have come to symbolize family, friendship, and the bonds that bring you together.

Tree of Family: Like the roots of a tree, family gives us the support and love to keep growing no matter how far we branch out as individuals.

Tree of Friendship: Like leaves on a tree, our life is brightened by friends who help define us as the individuals we are. The Tree of Friendship reminds us to cherish each of our friends, the old and the new, as each one adds a unique leaf to our tree of life.

Tree of Sisters: Whether she's your sibling or your closest friend, she nurtures you, supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Tree of Motherhood: A celebration of mothers and the important role they play supporting us through the journey of life.

Tree of Fatherhood: A celebration of fathers and the important role they play guiding us through the journey of life.

Tree of Brothers: Whether he's your sibling or your wingman, he supports you, laughs, and grows with you.

Sold individually. Not intended as a tree ornament.

Use your own sturdy wire, fishing wire, or ribbon to hang the globe from the display stand or elsewhere.

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 Globe

It should come with a stand/holder. The holder should be relative to the size of the gift (not too large) & offered in various attractive non-tarnishing metals.

Why send flowers?

This was a perfect way of providing those who have lost loved ones with a beautiful remembrance piece that will last a lifetime. Our friends have sent quick notes of how when they see it they smile and think of one of the many great memories they have. We used to send stars. This is so much more personal. I highly recommend it.

I have several katris balls that I have collected over the years. They're very expensive to my budget which is retired person on fixed-income so I can't buy them very often. The problem that I've had two times now is that the colors on the internet do not reflect the true colors in the balls. For instance the Spring ball I purchased on the internet looked as if it was yellow and green and when I got it it was actually Brown and yellowish green. I would not have purchased a ball that had Brown in it. I wanted something that was yellow green. The other ball that I purchased looked like it was clear with clear strands on the inside and I was very excited to have finally found a clear ball. Unfortunately when it arrived it is black and white spots or maybe they are dark blue and white it's hard to tell either way it is a largely painted ball. I just wish that the colors and the descriptions were a little bit more articulate on the internet because once you pay $45 plus tax for ball it's kind of a pain to not receive what you're expecting.
