Houston Llew Spiritiles: Chrysalis

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“A possibility was born the same day as you.” —Marcus Solero

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: At birth, it is effortless to see the possibilities. The field is wide open to explore with potential moments and opportunities to grow and make a difference. As time and experience go on, we allow this field to narrow, strangely affording fewer possibilities through. We have this tendency to limit ourselves, thinking that what is possible is now less, when nothing could be further from the truth. Each day, we have the option to limit our chances, or pose “what ifs” and let what it is we need fulfilled in our lives drive our choices. Possibility WAS born the same day as you, but it is also born every day you live.
