“Music is my refuge. I crawl into the grooves.” —Maya Angelou
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: There’s something so classic to the gentle hum of the record. It doesn’t give you the best quality of sound, sometimes it feels as though the music is echoing ever so slightly through a chamber, but none the less the experience of playing songs on a record is tactile, memorable. You connect to the music by gently laying the needle through the spinning groove, and sound responds to your touch. This kinetic and co-created birth of art holds tight to us, wraps us in comfort, becomes our refuge.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Charleston, South Carolina
Through fortuitous circumstances, Spiritiles creator Houston Llew met the master enamelist Zingaro and learned the craft of glass enameling. His artistry has evolved from enameled imagery to a combined image and story design. This has become the cornerstone of his work.
