"What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"Mary Oliver
The Story Behind This Tile
When we’re young, the world is large, it’s open, waiting for us to step in and take up the mantle of its endless possibilities. As we age into adulthood, we unconsciously develop this inverse relationship with the world. We grow, the world and its endless possibilities shrink. Except that isn’t the case at all. Age tricks us into seeing only the opportunities in our immediate line of sight. When we realize the trick for what it is, the periphery lights up, the full range of possibilities we felt when we were young comes back into view. What we do then is up to us. — Being curious, staying delighted by the small things, focusing our attention on what really matters — that’s how we forge our wild and precious life.

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 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.
