Houston Llew Spiritiles: Greatest Gift (Retired)

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“The best of all gifts around any holiday tree—the presence of a joyous family wrapped up in each other.” —Burton Hillis

NOTE: There will be a limited number of these Spiritiles produced and consequently a very limited number available to us for sale, so it is best to order yours now (please limit purchases to one per customer). We expect to receive our allotment by November 10th and will then begin shipping online orders.

This Limited Edition Holiday Spiritile has its own story that inspires, uplifts, and brings a hopeful connection to life. Handcrafted in Charleston, it 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: Gathered around the tree with our loved ones, the children waiting on bated breath for the first gift of the year to be opened; we are reminded of the things that matter most to us. The gathering of our loved ones in the same place, the warmth of their embrace after the distance between visits, the laughter that fills the room as everyone is reminded of the years before. You see, it is not the physical gifts under the tree that are to be celebrated, it is our family, our friends, and the moments that we get to share together. The memories that will last a lifetime, the smells, the music that will forever invoke a memory, solidifying a place in time- bringing you right back to the gatherings and warm hugs of comfort and joy.

ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Houston Llew
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.
