6x6 Frank Thomas House

Believing the architect should create total environments, Frank Lloyd Wright's designs included art glass windows, furniture, and lighting. This tile is adapted from Wright's art glass design in one of three vestibule ceiling light fixtures in the Frank Thomas House. Build in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1901, the Thomas House holds some of Wright's most intricate leaded art glass.

  • Actual tile size: 5-13/16" square

Motawi polychrome tiles are striking individual art pieces as much as functional tile installation accents. We’re told that our tiles will give you serious cred in gift-giving circles. And each one is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

We embrace variation and handmade beauty. The bold heft of each Motawi tile reveals serious craftsmanship. And our time-honored hand-glazing methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.

Our tile frames are made by Dard Hunter Studios, founded by early Roycrofter Dard Hunter and run by his grandson, Dard Hunter III.

The 2-inch Oak Park flat frame is also made of oak and comes in Craftsman Oak or Ebony finish. Its finished size is 9-1/2" x 9-1/2".
