Since 1992, the artisans at Motawi Tileworks have hand crafted art tile in their Ann Arbor, Michigan studio. These distinctive tiles are known for their rich glazes and uniquely American designs, inspired by nature, art and architecture. The Tileworks have focused on two decorative styles, the Relief tile with a sculptural quality in low-relief with a single glaze and the Polychrome tile that has many colors separated by a tiny ridge of clay. There is a third type of tile also made it is the hand dipped Field tile, or plain tile. Pictured is an example of the Motawi Mosaic Blends that are a mix of old and new with a contemporary palette. The borders come in five patterns and four standard colors with custom color combinations available.
