Houston Llew Tile - 236 Corduroy
"Life is a matter of waiting for the right moment to act." Paulo Coelho
The Story Behind This Tile
Surfers spend an inordinate amount of time waiting. Not "doing nothing" as waiting around might be considered. They wait watchfully, learning to recognize the signature curves so that when they choose a wave, it isn't a wave yet. It's a swell with all the signs of curling and creating that gorgeous arc of thrill coursing over the shore. Acting in the right moment means the difference between cruising through the tunnel and being swept under by the crest. The stakes can be high, just like in our life. But the thrill remains. When we see the corduroy of swells turning quickly into waves heading our way, we turn our board toward land, and all we need do is enjoy the ride.

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.
