Houston Llew Spiritiles: Joyride

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“If life was easy, where would all the adventure be?” —Unknown

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: Taking a bike ride—even on the nicest of days—calls on us to get up from the comfort of our couch and face the challenges that befall a simple task. This tile speaks to us when we are ‘in a rut’—sometimes a challenge is just what is needed. Why not a lovely bike ride on a sunny day?

ABOUT THE ARTIST
