222 'Sea Mate'
“In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with.” —Charles M. Schulz
Every Spiritile has its own story that inspires, uplifts, and brings a hopeful connection to life. Handcrafted in Atlanta, each is made with finely ground colored glass that is handpainted, fused to copper in a kiln at 1500 degrees, and then wrapped around a wooden frame (see more here). Spiritiles can be hung on the wall or displayed freestanding, and withstand direct sun, humidity, and even outdoor conditions. Care and hanging information here.

Artist Statement About This Piece: There are so many places on the bucket list. Snow-capped peaks, exotic marketplaces, breath-stealing wonders abound. The list of places to go and things to see can be overwhelming. Traveling can become stressed when agendas drive the adventure. The reasons for going can be many, but the best memories of traveling often revolve around the same thing: laughing, exploring, and learning with the one person you can let go of the agendas with, and enjoy the day.
