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 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.

Stake is plastic

I will be returning this item.
This has a single prong plastic stake - not stable, especially considering my dogs investigate my garden.

    This is quite pretty on my patio. I like it best during the day. The light at night doesn't really highlight the design or make the whole orb glow. It's just sort of a light within the glass.
