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.
Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents. We’re told that our tiles will give you serious cred in gift-giving circles. And each one is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship. And Motawi's time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
On the back you will find the Motawi Tileworks stamp, the signature of the tilemaker and a notch for hanging.
Actual tile size: 5 13/16 x 7-13/16 x 5/8 inches
