Each Spiritile is carefully handmade in Houston's Atlanta, Georgia studio using a series of intricate stencil techniques. Finely ground colored glass is applied to raw copper using precise layering with hand sifters. The piece is then kiln fired before being applied to the wood base. The true gift of Spiritiles lies not only in the detailed and shimmering glass images, but also in the quotes sgraffitoed around the sides, creating an inspiring story through words and images in glass. Houston likes to say these artworks are “Created as windows of the enlightened spirit,” inspiring those who interact with them.
While every piece has its own unique essence, all are created to live in community with the others, giving the collector limitless possibilities of personal expression. With every new collection released, other Spiritiles are retired. They will not fade, and are created to endure for generations.
