Tardis #013v4 – Houston Llew 

Several years ago… Houston discovered a Spiritile that just “appeared” on his website! Overnight, this lucky #13 Spiritile came to be known as TARDIS – Time and Relative Dimension In Space. Houston had to start making it!
This wacky, unique Spiritile transformed a year later into its next version. TARDIS defied time, space, and logic – it didn’t abide by any of the rules other Spiritiles followed.
This one stuck around for a while before it too transformed! Every TARDIS’ design evolves, but each one follows the theme of ‘TIME’ – our memories, our present moments, our future opportunities – calling us to value our space and time. Once again, TARDIS transforms!

This is the latest version 4 of the Tardis Spiritile which is continually changing.  Each Spiritile has its own unique quote along the sides of it. This beautiful tile with the sundial called ‘Tardis’ has a quote from Ferdinand Magellan reads “Embark on the most daring of all endeavors, Meet the future without fear and conquer the unknown.”

Every Spiritile by Houston Llew is handcrafted in Atlanta, GA.  From American made copper, glass and wood. Finely ground colored glass is handpainted on copper, then fired by kiln at 1500 degrees. It’s like drawing with sand, Houston says, then toasting it on a very hot fire.

Spiritiles visually share the brilliant moments that make up your unique story. As gifts, they share brilliant moments with the people you love. They can wall hang or stand alone, and will never fade or tarnish.

Molten Glass on Copper Tile
Tile Size: 5.25 X 1.75 X 8.5 in.

About the Artist:

It is not a simple task to branch out from an established medium and create something new. Late night hours, artist wages, and ramen noodles join the blood, sweat, and tears of growing a new art concept from a classic medium. But all of the hard work and long hours can pay off when combined with a vision for telling stories in enameled wall art. Houston Llew started his venture inside a hot garage in Atlanta in the summer of 2008- at the depths of the worst recession since the Great Depression.

A combined vision for art and an eternal optimism turned 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 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 animagistic 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.
