Houston Llew Spiritiles: Untamed

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“A life lived wild is a life well lived.” —Carrie Wild

Every Spiritile has its own story that inspires, uplifts, and brings a hopeful connection to life. Handcrafted in Atlanta, each is made with finely ground colored glass that is handpainted, fused to copper in a kiln at 1500 degrees, and then wrapped around a wooden frame (see more here). Spiritiles can be hung on the wall or displayed freestanding, and withstand direct sun, humidity, and even outdoor conditions. Care and hanging information here.

Artist Statement About This Piece: Regal and watchful, the red fox turns its eye directly towards the world and aims to adapt to any environment, being tamed by none. It exists on every continent but one. The fox survives in the rural grasses and the urban jungle, using its cunning instincts to sustain its pups all while keeping the heart of the wild in their paws. We can learn so much from a creature that manages to adapt to a changing world while remaining fundamentally untamed.
