Cat lovers everywhere, rejoice! This lazy calico is just waiting for you to take her home so she can lounge around, gazing at birds from the comfort of your windowsill. Who knows? She might even catch one.
This tile is based on the work of celebrated wildlife artist Charley Harper (1922-2007), a self-described "minimal realist." This design is adapted from the artist's print titled "Limp on a Limb."
For over 20 years, the artisans at Motawi Tileworks have hand-crafted art tile in their Ann Arbor, Michigan, studio. These distinctive tiles are known for their rich glazes and and uniquely American designs, inspired by nature, art and architecture. Unlike mass-produced tile, the unique design, beautiful craftsmanship, and affordability of Motawi tile allows people to own and enjoy real art, which won’t go out of style and will last for generations.
Polychrome tiles have many colors separated by a tiny ridge of clay and are made by pooling the glazes with bulb syringes into the areas delineated by the tiny ridges of clay.
On the back you will find the Motawi Tileworks stamp, the signature of the tilemaker.
Actual tile size: 5-13/16" square.
