This piece is made to order it will be ready to ship 2-4 weeks from order date. It is created the same way Spiritiles are created.

This limited edition piece features a perfect waddle of penguins that Houston designed and sketched circa 2017 on the flight to Breckenridge not long after the birth of his first child. A group of penguins is actually called a 'waddle'. 

  • 15 x 15 x 2"
  • glass enamel on copper, formed around a wood core
  • status: limited edition

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.
