Waterlilies Motawi Tile - Light Blue
This delicate stylized design of waterlilies, common in the tranquil ponds of the Midwest, is adapted from Frank Lloyd Wright's drawing "Waterlilies", which is thought to be designed for an art glass screen in 1895 but never produced.
This early example epitomizes Wright's ability to incorporate themes from nature and exemplifies his philosophy of "organic architecture"- the connecting of the natural world into his architecture as well as his decorative designs.
Dimensions: approximately 5.875 x 7.875 inches (as each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16 of an inch)
Tile is 5/8 of an inch thick and has a notch at the back for display.
About Motawi Tiles
Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents, made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Motawi tile makers embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship, and time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
