- 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.
About Motawi Tileworks
Located in Ann Arbor, Mich., Motawi Tileworks (The Tileworks) makes handcrafted tile as art pieces and for residential and commercial installations. Owner and Artistic Director Nawal Motawi began creating historically inspired tile in her garage and selling it at the local farmers market. Demand for her work grew, and in 1992 Motawi formed The Tileworks, which came to specialize in Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts and Midcentury Modern aesthetics.
