Houston Llew’s Spiritiles- Art for Everyone

 

Houston Llew’s Spiritiles are wonderful fine art pieces which capture emotions, memories, and moments in time. For instance, each piece tells the story of a special memory or loved one that we can cherish forever. Furthermore, spiritiles make great individual gifts for special occasions. They make wonderful collections, and create striking displays when grouped together as treasured fine art memories in your home.

Houston Llew’s Spiritiles Process

Enameling Process

These unique, handmade tiles are made of fine colored glass on a copper canvas that depict moments and tell stories. They are fired in a kiln to create a beautiful “crazing” effect that occurs in the enamel. Consequently, this creates small cracks in the glass and brings out the vibrance in the colors. Above all, Spiritiles work beautifully as stand-alone pieces, or can be displayed together on a wall for a striking display of art.

Spiritiles History

Houston Llew studied under a master enamellist, Zingaro, in Atlanta, Georgia, and continues to live and work there today. He pairs quotes and stories with dueling images to create new context in each one of his tiles. He wants his work to connect to real life emotions and uplift his viewers. Therefore, he creates unique experiences when viewing the works.

Each Spiritile tells a story, with a quote that runs along the outer edge of each piece. Llew wants each piece to harness an emotion and tell a story of a moment in time. As a result, Spiritiles make sentimental gifts to commemorate life’s special moments either for yourself or someone else.

Llew’s collection of Spiritiles evolve with time. Certain tiles become retired, and he actively creates new work. Subsequently, with his vast collection of moments, there is a Spiritile that is sure to resonate with you. In short, Spiritiles are a perfect way to bring a personalized fine art addition into your home, or the home of a loved one.
