'Tickled Ivory' Spiritile
'Tickled Ivory' Spiritile - "Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it." - Tom Lehrer / Houston Llew is an enameling artist of his own distinctive genre specializing in glass on copper artworks known as Spiritiles. In his kiln-hot Atlanta studio, each tile is made by hand using ground glass that is painted, then kiln-fired to copper and enveloped around a solid frame. Every Spiritile has its own story wrapped around the sides to match the iconic and inspiring moments drawn from life.
