This tile was adapted from an art glass window that Dard Hunter designed for the Roycroft Inn in 1906.
William Joseph "Dard" Hunter (1883-1966) was primarily devoted to the study of papermaking. His designs for the Roycroft community in East Aurora, New York, helped define the Arts & Crafts movement in America. His art and design has been an ongoing inspiration to us.Actual tile size: 3-13/16" x 7-13/16"Tiles are approximately 5/8″ thick and have a notch in the back for hanging unframed.Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents.
