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.
"To the world you may be just one person, but…to one person you may be the world." - Dr. Seuss
When we step back and think about just how many humans live in the world - not just in our neighborhood, our region, or our continent - but the entire planet, it's almost impossible to mentally absorb. 7 billion. Billion! Humans with complex, meaningful personalities, with families and communities like ours. When you take in that totality, suddenly feeling your own smallness, you might be tempted to feel insignificant ... but that is not at all the case. You have another person out there that you mean the world to. They're not thinking about the other billions of people as their world. You are their world! And that's exactly how you feel about them, too. The world is wrapped up in the person you love. Through our love and connection with each other, we are significant.
