4x8 Iris Indigo - Motawi Tileworks
Stylizing such an intricate flower as an iris proved tricky. Nawal Motawi mingled visual cues from multiple Arts & Crafts-period renderings to arrive at this design. Like the flower, our iris is more declarative than demure. We like this design for it's audacity.

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.
