Houston Llew Spiritiles: Sweet Spot

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“Home – the spot on earth supremely blessed, a sweeter spot than all the rest.” —Robert Montgomery

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.
