Based on Charlie Harper’s original piece, Zoo Babies, Giraffe & a Half captures a tender moment between mother and child, one that unites all members of the Animal Kingdom.
Beloved American illustrator and self-proclaimed minimal realist, Charley Harper’s graphically charged and often humorous depictions of flora and fauna continue to provide Motawi Tileworks with a wealth of imagery that translate perfectly into tile. Motawi’s unique mastery of the Cuenca technique of tile-making make it possible to give the animals of Harper’s colorfully whimsical world a new life in a new medium.
"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".
