Los Angeles’ character-filled classic homes are the perfect place to introduce handmade art tiles into the design mix. Motawi Tileworks, based in Ann Arbor Michigan, specializes in Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and Midcentury Modern aesthetics – in addition to being licensed to produce tile based on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. These colorful, hand-glazed tile, are created using the centuries-old Cuenca technique, in which glazes are carefully filled into the basins created by raised lines on the surface of the tile. Imagine a fireplace in a Los Feliz Tudor or Hancock Park Craftsman accented with one of the botanical or animal tile designs below. A Silver Lake Midcentury Modern kitchen with a graphic tile backsplash, or an Angelino Heights Victorian bathroom with a pedestal sink and tile clad walls, simply superb! motawi.com/
This bold botanical Arts and Crafts design would look right at home in a Craftsman bungalow or classic Victorian era property. Available in three colorways, blue, red and orange.
Influenced by classic patterns of Midcentury design, the Hourglass tile comes in Citrus, China Blue, Stone and Avocado. Makes the perfect kitchen backsplash border accent.
