Houston Llew Spiritiles: Turning Point

Houston Llew Spiritiles

“It’s funny how day by day little changes, but looking back, everything is different.” —C.S. Lewis

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 is about things moving slowly but relentlessly. A day doesn’t seem very long, but micro changes are indeed happening. Each day, a little different. A little bit here, a small change there. Then, suddenly—at a ‘turning point’—you notice everything is different. One day you’re admiring a row of green trees along the roadside and a week later that same row of trees may look completely different, on fire with the oranges and reds of autumn, seemingly overnight. The rich harvest hues of this tile evoke that same feeling of inevitable change and the passage of time.
