Motawi Tile Works

Ann Arbor, MI


We are an Ann Arbor-based company of craftspeople who create beautiful tile as individual works of art and for installations.

These tiles are known for their American designs, inspired by works of the Arts and Crafts Movement, and include such subjects as nature, art and architecture. Some of the artists whose work has been adapted by Motawi include Charley Harper, Dard Hunter and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Most tiles produced by Motawi are either styled in “Relief”, a low-relief sculpture colored with a single glaze, or “Polychrome”, a separation of several colors by a small ridge of clay.
