A hand blown glass sun catcher with concentric circles of brightly colored glass.

These are flat glass rondelles with concentric circles of color in a bullseye-like pattern. They are great for catching the light and sometimes project colored light when the sun hits them right! They are ideal for hanging in a window or on a wall and can be indoor or outdoor tree ornaments. They include a small glass loop at the top for hanging. Borosilicate glass makes these suncatchers both lightweight and more durable than soft glass.

Dimensions: approximately 9"-11" in diameter.

Because this item is handmade, it will vary slightly from the image shown.

Handmade by Jim Loewer of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I use a propane/oxygen mix torch to melt and shape glass. The color is colored borosilicate glass rods or powder melted directly into clear glass tubing. Forms are blown and sculpted in the flame and then annealed in a kiln.

I’ve tried other career paths. I studied painting, taught art in a juvenile jail, worked on a fishing boat, and got a J.D., but I kept returning to glass. I love turning solid glass into a liquid and back again and experimenting with new ways of adding color, shaping glass, and pushing the boundaries of size for lamp-working. As a maker, I aim to make colorful, playful work that you will want to hang in your windows, decorate your house with, drink your whiskey from, and give to your mom.
