Motawi Tileworks Collection

Artist Yoshiko Yamamoto is a self-taught block printmaker who strives always to fuse Japanese design sensibility with fine craftsmanship. Several years ago, Nawal Motawi, a longtime admirer of Yoshiko's work, approached her for a collaboration. Motawi thought Yamamoto's bold prints would work well as a raised-line tile design. She was right. Yamamoto's graceful, swaying scenes brought the clay to life.
This "Ugly Duckling" image came from Yoshiko's daily ritual of nightly reading. The children couldn’t have enough of this story! Who wouldn’t vote for the underdog (or the under-duck)?
Tile size: 3-13/16" x 7-13/16"
