"The world tells you to hurry. Art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art." - Junot Diaz
The Story Behind This Tile: Quite often our days rush past with a steady blur of deadlines and to-do lists. At the end of it, we mark off the ‘done,’ move others to tomorrow, and start the rush all over again. Two things I know for sure can’t be rushed - one is a rainbow and the other is art. Just like that rare moment when a falling spray of raindrops collides with brilliant rays of sunlight to create a cacophony of color in the sky, the moment a perfect inspiration intersects with the brush or word or melody, the result is more than a sum of its parts. It’s exponential. That peak experience - whether as creator or fortunate recipient - requires only that you lay aside your ‘list’ and open up your senses. Take your time and the art will speak. You can’t rush a rainbow!

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.
