Houston Llew Tile - #136 The Way Retired


"As you start out upon your way, the way will appear."Rumi

The Story Behind This Tile

Rumi reminds us that as you walk towards the direction in which you feel pulled, doors will continue to open. Follow your joy, your heart, your intuition - and the way forward will appear. With its dramatic pier and ocean as metaphoric elements, this tile gently reminds us to have faith in what our heart tells us, a faith as deep as the ocean, and continue pulling towards the direction we are pulled. When Houston designed this tile, he captured this image during a trip with his girlfriend (now wife!) to meet her family. This scene and its story by Rumi marked a pivotal moment in his life as an artist.

Details & Dimensions

Release Date:April 30, 2013

Made by hand with USA-sourced copper, glass enamel, and a custom wood box frame.

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.
