Houston Llew Spiritiles: Tardis, Edition 4

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“Embark on the most daring of all endeavors, Meet the future without fear and conquer the unknown.” —Ferdinand Magellan

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: The Tardis Spiritile—a piece that refuses to follow the rules. It bends time and space to transform its design at will. In 1521, Ferdinand Magellan sailed around the world, chasing the sun each day on his quest into the uncharted horizon. This Tardis v4 challenges us to take that plunge, to embark upon a fearless new adventure—the most daring of all our endeavors—and follow the sun into our future to conquer the unknown.
