Houston Llew started off as an artist with a singular purpose - to make art that create happiness, sparks joy, and brings hope to each person who encounters it.
Each made by hand with a copper canvas, and a colourful glass enamelled image which is enhanced by the natural "crazing" that magnifies the luminescence of the glass, coupled with an uplifting quote or story that wraps around the edges; each Spiritile is as unique as the collector or gift recipient.
These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
Commemorate a life milestone, a birth, someone's passing, or a marriage. Want to let someone know how much you appreciate them? Perhaps a memento to remember the vacation or adventure that brought you so many wonderful moments. Spiritiles are the perfect work of art to celebrate the ones you love & inspire you to follow your own dreams and ambitions! Whether you are adding to your own collection or looking for a gift for a loved one, the hope is at least one will spark a warm memory, bringing a smile.
At any given time there are roughly 74 Spiritiles in the current collection. A few times a year, some of the current collection is retired, making room for a new release of Spiritiles.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
