Trifecta Trio | Houston Llew Spiritile
The Trio Series by Houston Llew is a limited edition release from the creator of the Spiritiles. Each design is handmade in limited editions of 100 total, and every set is numbered on the back. The three panels are enameled glass on copper, much like the Spiritiles, but without a featured quote on the sides.

Every Spiritile is made painstakingly by hand in Houston Llew's studio in Atlanta, Georgia. The glass is applied to one side of the metal using stencils and relying on precise layering with hand sifters. The piece is only fired once. After firing, a pin is rolled over the enameled metal to form intentional crazing marks in the glass. Although it goes against the medium's traditional teachings, Houston says this technique creates increased light refraction, particularly in the transparent glass.
Trios can be hung on the wall and withstand high humidity, direct sun and covered outdoor environments (we recommend taking them inside during cold winter weather).
