"Out beyond the ideas of right and wrong, there is a field. I will meet you there." Rumi
The Story Behind This Tile
In our youth, we aim to prove the "rightness" of our ideas. Scenes of past argument are easy for us to recall, and while at the time those arguments seemed so vital, in reflection they are often inconsequential compared to the importance of our relationship. We wanted to be right, even at the cost of disconnecting from the people we love. Part of our maturity in self comes when we learn what battles are truly of consequence, which ones matter, and what small disagreements we can let go of in order to strengthen those relationships. Rumi speaks to this sense of letting go of our "rightness" in order to meet up with the other and enjoy that field together.
Release Date: January 29, 2019
Collection: Spring 2019
Made by hand with USA-sourced copper, glass enamel, and a custom wood box frame.
5¼" x 8½" x 1¾" - akin to the size of a novel.
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 ¼" 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 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
