Handcrafted art tile.
Mid-century modern meets Motawi mastery in these tiles based on the work of celebrated wildlife artist Charley Harper (1922-2007), a self-described "minimal realist." From the Harper print "Red and Fed" (1970).
The Making of a Motawi Art Tile
An art tile design is etched into a plaster mold. Clay is pressed into the mold, trimmed and bisque-fired in the kiln. Each tile is then glazed by hand and returned to the kiln for a final firing. Motawi glazers employ the centuries old Cuenca technique, carefully filing glazes into the "basins" created by thin, raised lines in the clay.
