Houston Llew Spiritiles: Turner Heart II

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)” —E. E. Cummings

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: This poem is often described as one of the most talked about poems in modern times. Cummings focuses on the power and unity of love, and how it connects not only the two individuals in that relationship, but the world at large. This tile, with his bold stylistic heart encasing a similar heart, is a subtle and powerful expression of the speaker in this poem; he is completely in love with his significant other and feels such a unity with the heart of the significant other, that the experience is one of holding another heart inside the one we already have.
