Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, 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. In addition to its own unique designs, The Tileworks is also licensed to produce art tile based on the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and Charley Harper. Motawi art tiles are now sold in more than 300 locations in the U.S. and Canada, and Motawi tile installations grace homes and public spaces worldwide.
All our tiles are handmade in our studio to produce custom ceramic tile for your home. Inherent with handmade ceramic tile is variation in the hue, shade and glaze finish. To most, this natural variation is the intrinsic beauty that draws your eyes to our tile. For others, it is the wide variety of Arts & Crafts glaze colors that are available. Our field tiles are extruded and hand cut to the desired size. Our reliefs are produced from our production molds; either from our 30 ton mold press or hand-pressed molds. We make our tile to function and fit the space for your pleasure to reflect your creativity and personality.
