    Description

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

    Wright’s Oak Park Home and Studio on Chicago Avenue was the first residential design over which he had complete artistic control. The Oak Park Studio, added to the home in 1897, was Wright’s workspace during a prolific period in his career: It was there he developed the Prairie School style and produced more than a third of his life’s work.

    Motawi Tileworks’ 4x8 Skylight art tile is based on one of a pair of art glass skylights at the entrance to the octagonal studio. Their autumnal colors transform the interior light as the seasons change, which made a dramatic first impression on Wright’s clients and visitors.
    • 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.
    • Actual Tile Size: Approximately 3 7/8” x 7 7/8”. As each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16".
    • Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.

    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.
