Tickled Ivory - 003
Each Houston Llew 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.
"Life is like a piano. What you get depends on how you play it."
- Tom Lehrer
Any musician will tell you that the art is a science in its technicality, and a moving emotional target in its practice. Just because you KNOW the notes, doesn't mean you FEEL them. And you must feel them. Life is like this. We feel our way through, practicing always into order to play out what exists within us.
