"Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it." - Tom Lehrer
Houston Llew is an enameling artist of his own distinctive genre specializing in glass on copper artworks known as Spiritiles. In his kiln-hot Atlanta studio, each tile is made by hand using ground glass that is painted, then kiln-fired to copper and enveloped around a solid frame. Every Spiritile has its own story wrapped around the sides to match the iconic and inspiring moments drawn from life. These pieces are best enjoyed together in a collection that reflects your unique style and story. They are made to be gifted, collected, and treasured for years to come.
Each Spiritile measures 5 ¼” x 8 ½” x 1 ¾” and weighs three pounds. Spiritiles easily wall hang or stand alone. These wonderful artworks will never fade or tarnish and may be enjoyed in sunny or humid spots where other art may not endure.
