Each Houston Llew 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 an imagistic 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 around the sides to create an inspiring story through words and images in glass.
"May all your joys be real joys and all your pains, champagne." - Anonymous
It's a beautiful wish, is it not? That all your joys together be real and felt, and the pains in your journey be champagne. But there is a deeper meaning here, too. It's all about your perspective. Inevitably, there will be challenges in your life together. It's effortless to celebrate when the going is clear, but an easygoing journey doesn't make a story worth celebrating, no? It is how we meet our challenges and grow together through them that pain turns to champagne. When two become one, the creed should be that all challenges will be met with joint positive force - meeting each day with joy and resilience, knowing that together, you can do anything. Cheers to your union!
