    Description

    Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.

    In 1927, Wright designed a series of 12 monthly covers for Liberty magazine based on seasonal themes. Unfortunately, the publishers judged them as too radical for the time. The magazine returned Wright’s presentation drawings, which became the basis for later interpretations executed in diverse media. Each cover design exemplifies Wright’s practice of using the tools of his trade — T-square, triangle and compass — to create lively geometric designs.

    Wright envisioned “Frozen Spheres” as the wintry cover art for the magazine’s January issue. Nearly a century later, Motawi Tileworks celebrates this study in geometry, asymmetry and color with its 8x8 ceramic art tile rendering of “Frozen Spheres.”
    • Motawi tiles are striking art pieces and installation accents. Each tile is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We embrace variation and handmade beauty: Our time-honored methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.

    Vendor Info

    Motawi Tileworks:
    Nawal Motawi founded Motawi Tileworks more than 20 years ago. A University of Michigan art school graduate with a restless spirit and an interest in applied arts, Nawal moved to Detroit to learn tilemaking at Detroit’s storied Pewabic Pottery. She returned to Ann Arbor after a few years and began making her own tiles in a garage studio and selling them from a stand she rented at the local farmers’ market.

    Today, Nawal is still designing and making tiles in Ann Arbor. Her companies, Motawi Tileworks and Rovin Ceramics, employ more than 30 people. Her company utilizes Toyota-Style Production and practices an intentional workplace culture.

    Recently, Motawi tiles have been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and Dwell Magazine.

    Why Motawi Tile?
    Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents. These tiles will give you serious cred in gift-giving circles. Each one is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

    At Motawi Tileworks they embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship. Time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
