ANN ARBOR, MI -- Motawi Tileworks (The Tileworks), located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has released two vibrant new art tiles: 4- x 4-inch Peony Bloom and 4- x 8-inch Puffin Profile (shown above). Peony Bloom ($40), is the latest addition to Motawi’s extensive florals collection. The 4- x 4-inch tile is available in Grey Blue, Indigo, Pale Blue and Red colorways.
Puffin Profile ($64), based on a design by midcentury modern artist Charley Harper, is The Tileworks’ most recent collaboration with the Charley Harper Art Studio. The 4- x 8-inch tile is available in Cream, Light Blue and Ocean Blue.
“Both of these tiles were trickier to design than I expected,” said Nawal Motawi, owner and artistic director of Motawi Tileworks. “The 4- x 4-inch Peony Bloom is for peony lovers who like our smaller tiles. Puffin Profile is the result of a design process that required repeated paring down while still maintaining the unique features of this charming sea bird.”
Founded in 1992, The Tileworks makes handcrafted tile as art pieces and for residential and commercial installations. The company releases new art tiles regularly, including original designs and those based on the work of celebrated artists such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Charley Harper. Motawi art tiles are available for purchase in The Tileworks gallery, online at motawi.com and in more than 300 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
