Tile with small easel

3x3 Chipmunk - Bone

In 2024 we launched a new and improved clay body so our glaze colors look a little different. We are working on updating our samples. New photography is coming soon!

The Charley Harper Minis feature the whimsical wildlife images of artist Charley Harper. Midcentury modern meets Motawi mastery in this charming series of 3x3 art tiles.

    • Actual Tile Size: Approximately 2 7/8” x 2 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.

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.

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).
