Behind the Scenes of Houston Llew’s SpiritilesPosted on : March 5, 2012
We get a lot of interest in Houston Llew’s Spiritiles that are displayed for sale in the Arbor Gate Too shop. Namely, “how are these made?”
We’ve got a great video from Houston Llew that reveals a little of the process and his inspiration behind these unique pieces.
Houston Llew’s Spiritile collectibles are created with molten glass on copper. Designed for free-standing or wall display, enhanced with words of wisdom from around the world, these unique works made wonderful gifts to honor special moments.
Each Spiritile design wraps around all sides of the panel, offering a different glimpse from any direction. Terrific on their own, even better in multiples, these durable works can easily tolerate direct sun, humidity or even outdoor conditions.
Display on a wall, or stand them on a mantelpiece or table–they are certain to spark a conversation. Colorful works like”Dream On” and “Ms.” highlight the beautiful richly layered effects that can be achieved with glass enamel artwork.
Come see our amazing wall of Spiritiles on display at The Arbor Gate.
