Houston was just seven the first time he got lost in the art world. A boy gone missing at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, he was found quietly sketching Botticelli’s “Annuniciation” in his notepad. In later years, Houston shared the same quiet moments in the Holland with Van Gogh and with da Vinci at the Louvre. Houston’s Spiritiles are molten glass on copper art collectibles that capture the spirit of the enlightened moment. Each is handcrafted in his studio in the West End district of Atlanta where he and his fabulous artists practice music and bumper pool and thrive on creating the fabulous art of Spiritiles.
