“What matters more than the wine is the moment and the friends with whom our wine is shared.” —Olivier Magny
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: A recurring vision about what it means to connect to others comes to mind in quiet moments. It’s a visual snapshot, a living, breathing, laughing capture of a singular time, one we’ve had at some point, an experience that differs in style, but not in kind. It’s on a patio, in a backyard, around a campfire, at a dining table. Someone stands up halfway, laughing at the latest funny story told round the circle, and asks you, “Would you like another glass?” It doesn’t matter what’s in the bottle, pitcher, jug, or decanter... you look up into their face, committing the moment of connection with those you love to memory, and say, “yes.”

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.
