4x12 Amaryllis - Red

This design is adapted from a finely detailed four-piece panel attributed to Leon Victor Solon while he was working at Mintons. The original is featured in a book by antique tile experts Sandie Fowler and Wendy Harvey, who own the original piece themselves. Our design, about 1/8th the size of the original, has been given the authors' blessing.

  • Motawi tiles are striking art pieces and installation accents. Each tile is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We embrace variation and handmade beauty: Our time-honored methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
  • Actual Tile Size: Approximately 3 7/8” x 11 7/8”. As each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16".
  • Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.

Easels are an elegant option for art tile display. Fabricated from powder-coated steel, our easels are locally made and feature durable single-piece construction.

  • Medium easel: holds any unframed tile larger than 3 inches (recommended for most of our tiles if unframed).
  • Large easel: holds any framed tile or any unframed tile larger than 4 inches.
  • Small easel: holds 3 and 4-inch tiles (unframed).

Our quarter-sawn oak frames, handmade by Dard Hunter Studios, are available with a natural Oak or Ebony finish. They can hang horizontally or vertically, or perch on our large easels. Frame features include mitered corners and stapled joints.

  • This frame’s outer dimensions are 7-1/2" x 15-1/2".
  • Frame width is 2".
  • Any framed tile can pair with our large easel.
  • Note: Frame woodgrain and stain opacity varies.
