“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.” —Coco Chanel
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: Style arbiter Gabrielle Chanel, or Coco, made the world more beautiful with her iconic fashion designs. Born into poverty, she lost her mother as a young child and was sent to live in an orphanage. Committed to self-invention, she famously said, “My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.” Her timeless aesthetic that “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury” revolutionized fashion with her iconic suits and the simple elegance of the “Little Black Dress.” This is a fashionable reminder that no matter what age we are, we are beautiful and therefore, timeless.

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.
