Blue Jay by Motawi Tileworks & Charley Harper

62.00

Motawi Tileworks was founded in 1992 by Nawal Motawi, who started out making tiles in her garage and selling them at the local farmers market.  Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Motawi embraces variation and handmade beauty.  The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship, and their time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.

This collection of tiles is based on the work of celebrated wildlife artist Charley Harper (1922-2007), self-described "minimal realist", and Cincinnati artist.  Mid-century modern meets Motawi mastery.

This handsome bird is perched on a snow-covered branch as he scans the winter sky before his next flight.  From the Charley Harper Sketchbook: How to Draw 28 Birds in Harper's Style.

Actual tile size: 3-13/16" x 7-13/16"

Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
