“Out beyond the ideas of right and wrong, there is a field. I will meet you there.” —Rumi
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: In our youth, we aim to prove the “rightness” of our ideas. Scenes of past argument are easy for us to recall, and while at the time those arguments seemed so vital, in reflection they are often inconsequential compared to the importance of our relationship. We wanted to be right, even at the cost of disconnecting from the people we love. Part of our maturity in self comes when we learn what battles are truly of consequence, which ones matter, and what small disagreements we can let go of in order to strengthen those relationships. Rumi speaks to this sense of letting go of our “rightness” in order to meet up with the other and enjoy that field together.

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.
