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.

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 lyrical trio was inspired by a book jacket cover by Talwin Morris, who designed for English publisher Blackie and Sons in the late 19th century.

This framed tile set includes:

One 4x8 Songbird Facing Left Tile in Jade
One 4x8 Long Stem Tile in Jade
One 4x8 Songbird Facing Right Tile in Jade
One Triple Legacy frame, 13 1/2" tall x 18" long

The Legacy frame is constructed of 3" quartersawn oak. The frame is beveled with mitered corners and biscuit joints.
