Today, I’m featuring my favorite group of artisans, Motawi Tileworks. Years ago, I learned about them in a magazine to which we subscribe, American Bungalow. I had been meaning to run something about them and you may have noticed them in my blogroll. They have a new write-up in the Winter 2010 issue of the magazine and it brought them to the fore again in my thinking. I am most strongly inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement and Motawi produces tiles in this style. If you’d like to read more about this movement, I have quite a few links in my Resources section. Of all the mass-produced Arts & Craft tiles currently produced, Motawi is the best. The designs and craftsmanship…well, you take a look!
