Early-20th-Century English architect Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott designed needlepoint patterns for his wife, Florence, to stitch. Motawi tilemakers have transformed one of her charming needlepoint designs into this heartwarming tile.
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 and a notch for hanging.
This Lovebirds Tile signals that love is in the air, making it a delightful, long-lasting wedding or anniversary gift.
