Koi Pond tile is a scaled adaptation of a larger mural originally designed for the Grand Rapids [Michigan] Art Prize competition. The response to the mural was so overwhelming that Nawal Motawi decided to create a smaller tile for production.
Actual tile size: 5-13/16" x 7-13/16"
Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents. Each piece is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
We embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship and the time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
