Saguaro Forms Motawi Tile - Green
In 1927, Frank Lloyd Wright submitted a series of cover designs to Liberty magazine. All were rejected by the editors as too “radical” and were never published. One of these designs was “Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers,” Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image became one of Wright’s most popular and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature for the lobby of the renowned Arizona Biltmore hotel.
Motawi Tileworks’ Saguaro, a 6x8 ceramic art tile, reimagines the work once again while reflecting Wright’s stylized vision.
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.
