3/18/2017 - Everybody loves framed tiles!
And we have lots of them!

#1 above are the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® 1926-27 abstract Liberty Magazine Cover framed Tiles. The tiles are by Motawi and are framed by Dard Hunter Studios. Available framed individually or in a framed triptych arrangement, CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#2 above are framed Medicine Bluff Tiles by John Beasley. John learned his tile craft in rural Oklahoma near the Wichita Mountains and Geronimo’s burial site, thus the name. John now designs and casts his tiles in Ohio and they are framed by Dard Hunter Studios. Of particular note, John’s tiles are 3 dimensional and the birds look ready to fly. Available framed individually or in a couple of instances framed as a pair, CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#3 above are framed tiles by Motawi using designs by Arts & Crafts Press’ Yoshiko Yamamoto. Borrowing on Yoshiko’s popular block prints and Greeting Card designs, Nawal Motawi says of Yoshiko's work: "Yoshiko Yamamoto's art makes your eyes open a little wider and your mind feel a little calmer. We are drawn to her bold, delicate, and elegant simplicity with which she captures her subjects." Again, these tiles are framed by Dad Hunter Studios; CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#4 above is a large assortment of framed Charley Harper tile designs again by Motawi. Shackled by the laws of perspective trying to create the illusion of three dimensions on the two-dimensional plane, Charley’s art is modern, sophisticated and very charming. Being minimalist, his drawing style lends itself easily to the Motawi cuenca tile decorating technique. Also framed by Dard Hunter Studios, CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#5 above is one of our most popular framed tiles by Scott Weaver in Michigan. Scott learned his skill at Pewabic Pottery in Detroit. This striking framed tile makes an elegant statement for your entryway. Handmade by Scott, these tiles are also framed by Dard Hunter Studios. CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#6 above are Motawi’s interpretations of the famous original Grueby Tile design known as “The Pines” c1906. Motawi Tileworks has created a similar scene and uses a color palette similar to the highly sought after originals. Available as a framed pair or in two framed triptych arrangements, CLICK HERE to shop and order.

#7 above is another Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® set of framed Skylight tiles by Motawi. These 4" x 8" tiles by Motawi are inspired by the Skylight in the loggia of Wright's studio in Oak Park and the Skylight in the loggia of the Darwin Martin House in Buffalo. Also framed by Dard Hunter Studios, these framed tiles are available individually or in a framed triptych arrangement. CLICK HERE to shop and order.

In case you haven’t noticed, all our tiles are made in Michigan or Ohio and are framed by Dard Hunter Studios also in Ohio. Or simply put, all our framed tiles are completely made in the USA!
