Incandescent - 232 --- RETIRED
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.
"If your curiosity could be turned into electricity, it would light up the whole world." - Nikola Tesla
During the span of his life, Nikola Tesla's inquisitiveness and seemingly harebrained ideas lead to inventions that exceeded historical expectations. In the late 19th Century, Tesla devised the initial inventions of radio, radar, x-rays, hydroelectric power, among many more. His dedication to discovery was unparalleled. He solved problems before we as a society knew they existed. A man out of time, he was the embodiment of an inventor looking to create for the betterment of the world, rather than the enrichment of his pocket. Now, in this age of entrepreneurship and self-dedication, we can benefit from his inventions, and become inspired by the noble principles of this tenacious pioneer.
