Our From the Vault series allows us to fire up an “encore batch” of tiles in a retired but much-loved design. 6x6 Magic Ship, based on an antique Grueby Faience tile, has been on deck for some time for a vault release. We only have 155 of them — get yours before this ship has sailed! All these special-edition Magic Ships are signed on the back by Nawal Motawi, owner and artistic director of The Tileworks.
- Motawi tiles are striking art pieces and installation accents. Each tile is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We embrace variation and handmade beauty: Our time-honored methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
- Actual Tile Size: Approximately 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”. As each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16".
- Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
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.
