Houston Llew Spiritiles: Shaken

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“I like to have a martini, two at the very most. Three I’m under the table, four I’m under the host.” —Dorothy Parker

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: Dorothy Parker, a founding member of the literary group ‘The Algonquin Round Table’ and two time Academy Award nominee, was known as a wise-cracker and lover of gin. Her witty retorts and comebacks are the stuff of legend, and this tile colorfully pays tribute to the playful smart aleck that comes out when the martinis are flowing.
