Houston Llew combined his vision for art and an eternal optimism turning a dreary economic situation into an opportunity as Spiritiles deliver a beautifully handmade art product to a market looking for affordable pieces to show their fine art collectors. Today, Houston Llew no longer makes Spiritiles out of a garage -“Llewtopia,” as he calls it, is an expanding art studio near downtown Atlanta employing ten full-time artists and artisans as of October 2013.
Each Spiritile is carefully handmade using a series of intricate stencil techniques. From the beginning, Houston’s vision for his enameled artworks drew from the beauty of simplicity. He sought after an imagistic theme for his work rather than pursuing the abstract often seen in other enameled wall art. The image is just the beginning – each piece is paired with a quote sgraffitoed around the sides to create an inspiring story through words and images in glass.
Spiritiles are molten glass on copper art collectibles that capture the spirit of the enlightened moment. Handcrafted in the U.S.A., Spiritiles bring luminous imagery to life and share timeless ideas on their golden sides. Each tile is 5.25 X 1.75 X 8.5 in.
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.
