Houston Llew and his team of artists create beautiful, detailed wall tiles made of glass, copper, and wood in their Atlanta, GA studios. Some Spiritiles quote authors and poets, other philosophers and fellow artists, but every piece is designed to speak to our life and reach our emotive self.
Every Spiritile created reflects a piece of our story. These icons stretch our memory and bring to mind the people we love, the things we cherish, and the passions we pursue. When collected, Spiritiles become a montage of moments that make us smile, laugh, remember, and dare to dream.
To make these works of art, finely ground colored glass is handpainted on copper, then individually fired by at kiln at 1500 degrees. It’s like drawing with sand, Houston says, then toasting it on a very hot fire. This process ensures that the tiles will never fade or tarnish, and are created to endure for generations.
To collectors, Spiritiles are a way to visually share the brilliant moments that make up the story of their life. As gifts, they share special moments with the people you love.
