Family Owlbum by Motawi Tileworks & Charley Harper

78.00

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.

"Time Owlapses, and suddenly it's twins.  How come Pop's not in the picture? He's out hunting midnight snacks owl la carte." ~  Charley Harper.

This charming tile is adapted from Charley Harper's 1972 lithograph of the same name.

Actual tile size: 5-13/16" square

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