Cue Up - 214
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.
"Music is my refuge. I crawl into the grooves." - Maya Angelou
There's something so classic to the gentle hum of the record. It doesn't give you the best quality of sound, sometimes it feels as though the music is echoing ever so slightly through a chamber, but none the less the experience of playing songs on a record is tactile, memorable. You connect to the music by gently laying the needle through the spinning groove, and sound responds to your touch. This kinetic and co-created birth of art holds tight to us, wraps us in comfort, becomes our refuge.
