4x8 Dard Hunter Poppy - Stone

This tile was adapted from an art glass window that Dard Hunter designed for the Roycroft Inn in 1906. 

  • William Joseph "Dard" Hunter (1883-1966) was primarily devoted to the study of papermaking. His designs for the Roycroft community in East Aurora, New York, helped define the Arts & Crafts movement in America. His art and design has been an ongoing inspiration to us.
  • 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 7 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.

Locally made and fabricated from powder-coated steel, our easels feature durable and elegant single-piece construction.  

  • The 5-inch Emerson easel holds any unframed tile larger than 3 inches.
  • The 7-inch Roebuck easel holds any framed tile and any unframed tile larger than 4 inches.
  • The 3-inch mini easel holds 3 and 4-inch tiles (unframed).

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 made of quartersawn oak and comes in Craftsman Oak or Ebony finish. Its finished size is 11-1/4" x 7-1/2".
