Family Tree - 223
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.
"Other things may change us, but we start and end with family." - Anthony Brandt
When we're young, family is all we have to start out. They are our first connection, settled deep within our bones, and firmly imprinted upon our memory. As we grow through childhood, family can bother us, embarrass, annoy. We yearn to pull away and become independent, wanting to be known as "our own thing." And perhaps we do. But during this journey, at one point or another, family calls us home, not just physically, but to bond again with our first connection. In the midst of this reconnection, we discover that our home is in multiple hearts, as we find that our family is in our blood, in our love, and in the people we choose to be around.
