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.
