Description - Motawi Tileworks A153 by Anne Stewart O'Donnell

Spurred on by the marketplace and welcomed by architects and designers seeking to personalize their creations, hundreds of studio tile artists and makers are successfully producing tile today throughout the United States. Among the most revered of these is Motawi Tileworks of Ann Arbor, Michigan, founded by Nawal Motawi and her brother Karim in 1992. Today Motawi Tileworks, under their combined leadership, occupies a spacious studio in a natural setting west of town, where thirty people are employed. Far more than a prosperous and expanding enterprise, Motawi has become a symbol of artistic sensibility and success in the tile industry. The key to Motawis astounding progress lies in part in Nawals artistic achievementa blend of original art inspired and flavored by her interpretation of historic precedents. The result in her finished work reflects the past while being well suited to contemporary taste. The combination of color and design is striking and distinctly Motawi, clearly recognized as such throughout the country. In museum shops, high-end gift stores, and tile showrooms from coast to coast, Motawi stands out for both the quality of the design and the exquisite workmanship.
