    Product description

    "yours is the light by which my spirit's born: yours is the darkness of my soul's return - you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars" - E.E. Cummings 

    "Like this,"the silhouette said, gently lifting the light toward the sky. The smaller one to the left looked on, taking cues from the arms delicately holding the glowing lantern up high, set to release. This symbol of remembrance, of love lifter up over the water, ready to ascend to the heavens and return to the earth, with its flame finished, but its significance still burning bright. These lights that we ignite in our life are more than little flames. They are the emblems of who and what guide us in our journey by helping us to remember the past, seize the present and to create the future.

    Every Spiritile is made painstakingly by hand in Houston Llew's studio in Atlanta, Georgia. The glass is applied to one side of the metal using stencils and relying on precise layering with hand sifters. The piece is only fired once. After firing, a pin is rolled over the enameled metal to form intentional crazing marks in the glass. Although it goes against the medium's traditional teachings, Houston says this technique creates increased light refraction, particularly in the transparent glass.

    Spiritiles can be hung on the wall (they look especially impactful in groups), displayed freestanding, and even withstand high humidity, direct sun and covered outdoor environments (we recommend taking them inside during cold winter weather).
