Houston Llew Spiritiles: Memoir

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“You will know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory.” —Dr. Seuss

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.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
