The árbol de fuego, or Flame Tree is one of the most beautiful trees found in Latin America. Also known as Delonix regia, flamboyán, chivato, flamboyant, tabachín, malinche, ponciana, or acacia the tree blooms from February to July, providing nectar for the bees and inspiration to Salvadoran poets such as Alfredo Espino, who wrote a poem about this striking red tree.

Designed to set a unique mood in your office or home, this flame tree was handmade by seasoned Salvadoran artisans specializing in glass art, bringing extra color, shine, and texture to any environment. The Flame Tree was designed by Margarita Llort, El Salvador's stained glass pioneer and innovator. 

El Salvador’s flora and fauna are the focus of Margarita Llort’s VitroNATURA collection, highlighting through intense colors and mystifying textures the features of El Salvador's vivid wildlife. Margarita Llort’s pieces elegantly capture the often forgotten natural landscape of the unexpectedly diverse Central American country. 

Help protect El Salvador's biodiversity. When you purchase a piece from the VitroNATURA collection 25% of the proceeds go to SalvaNATURA Fundacion Ecologica, a not-for-profit organization devoted to preserving El Salvador's natural habitat and animal diversity. Additionally, Vitrales by Margarita Llort recycles and upcycles whenever possible, implementing a “Zero Waste” approach to production. All of the left-over glass from large projects is creatively used in new items. Every purchase is kind to our planet!
