Motawi Sumac in Cream - 4x8
Motawi Tileworks’ 4x8 Sumac tile is based on the abstract sumac motif used throughout the Wright-designed Dana-Thomas House. The House was built for Susan Lawrence Dana, a social activist and socialite, in 1902. Because of the unlimited budget of the patron, Frank Lloyd Wright created some of his finest and most detailed art glass compositions for the elaborate home in Springfield, Illinois. Many are geometric abstractions of natural elements with the midwestern sumac plant as the primary motif. The natural form has been interpreted, reduced to its basic geometry, and used in a variety of ways on more than two hundred windows, doors, skylight panels, and light fixtures throughout the home. The rich amber and brown palette mirrors the autumnal color scheme of the prairie.
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.
