Gifts of Art presents Distinctive American Art Tile
Motawi Tileworks was started in Ann Arbor, Michigan 25 years ago by Nawal Motawi in a small garage. Today, Motawi tiles are sold in over 300 locations nationwide, including galleries and the shops in Detroit Institute of Arts and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Tiles are made from a porcelain hybrid clay, a recipe unique to Motawi tiles. The raised lines on each tile require a hand glaze technique to pool the glaze between the lines. Motawi Tileworks has many themed collections, some based on the work of fine artists such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Charley Harper. You can also see 17 permanent Motawi art tile murals throughout Michigan Medicine.
