CANVAS Spiritile by Houston Llew #234

The story wrapped around Canvas reads: “The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.” - Neil Gaiman

As a celebrated author of incredible stories, Gaiman understands the gravity of the blank page in our creative journeys. It frightens us, delights us, and when we take the pen in hand to create something that wasn’t there before, the world around us lights up.

The Story Behind This Tile: Few things are quite as daunting as a blank page. The creation process often feels like what Ernest Hemingway coined as "staring down the White Bull." Two dimensional white noise stares back at you, and it becomes tempting to leave the page as is. This is how so many great ideas remain just that: a possibility unrealized. When we mark the first drops and lines of ink on the page, we take the creative bull by the horns. We say "not today!" to our fear and a resounding yes to our hopes, dreams, and ideas. Whatever we create, be it draft, sketch, or finished work, lights up our world.

Details & Dimensions

Release Date: May 1, 2019
Collection: Summer 2019
Made by hand with USA-sourced copper, glass enamel, and a custom wood box frame.
5-1/4" x 8-1/2" x 1-3/4" - akin to the size of a novel

Care & Use

CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.

DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.

HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a -1/4" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7-1/4" horizontal and 10-1/2" vertical.

    Ordered this spiritile via a pre-sale. I love the very light white/tan background, which is not typically common of HL. The other spiritiles that have a light colored background would include Hopscotch and maybe Raffles. HL usually has very colorful spiritiles, so this was nice to see a change up from the norm. This one is very unique, and the quote is quite inspirational.
