Motawi Tile (Framed) – California Oak (6×8″)
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.
The design for “California Oak” comes from a block print inspired by the rolling hills of the Central Coast in California. The 6×8″ tile is finished in a Dard Hunter Studios Oak Park frame made of quartersawn oak. Its finished size is 9-1/2 x 11-1/2″.
Every Motawi tile is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
