Epic Tales - 141
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.
"A reader lives a thousand lives." - George R.R. Martin
“Once a reading of a book is under way, and we sink into the experience, a performance of a sort begins… We perform a book - we perform a reading of a book. We perform a book, and we attend the performance… It is not that our narratives necessarily tell us something true about the world (though they might), but rather that the practice of reading feels like, and is like, consciousness itself: imperfect; partial; hazy; co-creative… As readers, we are both the conductor and the orchestra, as well as the audience.” -Peter Mendelsund, What We See When We Read
