Houston Llew Spiritiles: On Point

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“What seems challenging now will someday be your warm-up.” —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: This passionate piece reminds us of the dedication and drive it takes to pursue an art form and master it. Sometimes what we need is that little push, a reminder that this small technique or detail we’re working on now will someday be a cakewalk. If we can keep the birds eye view in mind, the momentary hurdle becomes more manageable. Knowing that we can improve helps us forward to doing so.
