Motawi Samara in Purple - 4x12
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century. Wright’s John and Catherine Christian House, also known as Samara (named after a pinecone’s winged seeds), was completed in West Lafayette, Indiana, toward the end of his illustrious career. The samara seed pattern appears on Wright’s perforated board design for the house, and perhaps most prominently on a rug commissioned by Professor Christian in the 1990s and designed by Taliesin’s Aris Georges and Cornelia Brierly. That rug was the inspiration for Motawi Tileworks’ 4x12 Samara art tile, which reinterprets Wright’s pattern once again in ceramic.
Motawi Tileworks is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan where they design and make all of their ceramic tiles by hand. They can be hung on the wall, displayed on a stand, or used as the focal point in your next tile project.
