Spiritiles by Houston Llew
A whole new selection of Spiritiles by Houston Llew, just in time to kick off summer! Each one is adorned with a fun and inspirational quotation that picks up the feel of the copper and enamel image perfectly. Karen found Houston's work on a trip to Utah a few years ago and just had to introduce his work to Chemers Gallery.

Houston's fun, box-like objects would be great placed on an end table, mixed in to a bookshelf, or hung in a little nook. The quotes that wrap around the tiles make them thoughtful gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions, or just because!

Pixie Dust - Houston Llew
 "The world is made of faith and trust and pixie dust." - J.M. Barrie

Entwined - Houston Llew
 "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." - Aristotle 

Llewcie - Houston Llew
"No one appreciates your very special genius like your dog." - Christopher Morley

Every Spiritile is made in Atlanta with American-made copper, glass and wood. The images are made from finely-ground colored glass painted by hand onto copper and then kiln fired. They will never fade or tarnish. Each quote is chosen with care to be positive and uplifting. The images are just so darn charming!

Stop into Chemers Gallery to see the whole grouping of new Spiritiles and pick your own story!
If we don't have the one you want, let us order it for you - 
after all, Houston has over 100 different designs to choose from!

Oh, What a Night!

What a great birthday for Karen! Not only did we have a HUGE party for her, but Sligo Rags played their upbeat Celtic music just outside our doors. (They even played "Happy Birthday" for her!) Plus, 10 of our talented artists joined us for an evening of painting, beading and all-around fun.

Thank you to everyone who joined us - we had a blast, and we hope you did, too!

Check out these great photographs, courtesy of Shelby Montelongo:
