This design is adapted from a finely detailed four-piece panel attributed to Leon Victor Solon while he was working at Mintons. The original is featured in a book by antique tile experts Sandie Fowler and Wendy Harvey, who own the original piece themselves. Our design, about 1/8th the size of the original, has been given the authors’ blessing.
Actual tile size: 3-13/16″ x 11-13/16″
Tiles are 5/8″ thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
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.
We embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship. And our time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
