It's the vision of Kitras Art Glass to be recognized as an excellent Canadian glass blowing studio that produces innovative, beautiful & decorative glass objects. We strive to create designs that enhance your home, garden & lifestyle. We believe that beautiful things enhance the enjoyment of everyday life.
Stephen Kitras began working as a glass blower in 1988 in Ontario Canada. For five years he worked alone handling all of the production & administrative tasks. He & his wife Elke were shipping the product from their dinning room table. In 1994 Kitras Art Glass was formed & they became founding partners of the corporation. At this time, the single most important factor in the company's growth was the beginning of exportation to the United States. By 2001 company sales had increased & a new facility was built to accommodate the increased production demands. In 2006 their oldest daughter, Sophie, joined the company. She is now the sales & marketing manager. Stephen continues to be involved in the company, overseeing all new product development, training of new staff, & when he has time, working on his own art projects & commissions. In 1999, the company suffered the loss of Elke Kitras to Leukemia, but the vision that she & Stephen developed for the company continues to thrive & believes That when surrounded by beauty the spirit is uplifted.
