Houston Llew, HLS
A southern boy born in Nashville, Houston attended school at Auburn University in Alabama then went to work at the seaport of Savannah. He moved along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico then adventured on westward in a Winnebago, fueling his tank with the occasional poker game. He soon found himself in Santa Fe where he would meet the accomplished artist Zingaro. The master shared with him a precious gift — his luminous medium of glass fired to copper, a timeless technique known to date back at least 13th century B.C.
Spiritiles are created with molten glass on copper. All the raw materials are made in USA: the glass comes from the Southeast and the copper comes from the Southwest. The imagery is created by hand with colored glass, kiln fired to copper. Spiritiles easily wall hang or stand alone. These artworks will never fade or tarnish and may be enjoyed in sunny or humid spots where other art may not endure.
