"She was a rare thing. Fine as a bee's wing." - Richard Thompson "Beeswing"
This deceptively simple little bee was a bit of a perplexing design. Nawal Motawi spent many hours getting these bees' wings and stripes to merge with the border just right.
Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents.
"We’re told that our tiles will give you serious cred in gift-giving circles. And each one is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship. And our time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence". -Motawi
