Houston Llew Spiritiles: Tickled Ivory

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“Life is like a piano. What you get depends on how you play it.” —Tom Lehrer

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: Any musician will tell you that the art is a science in its technicality, and a moving emotional target in its practice. Just because you KNOW the notes, doesn’t mean you FEEL them. And you must feel them. Life is like this. We feel our way through, practicing always into order to play out what exists within us.
