8x8 March Balloons - Cream

Believing the architect should create total environments, Frank Lloyd Wright's designs included art glass windows, furniture, and lighting.

In 1927, Wright designed a series of twelve seasonally themed monthly covers for Liberty magazine. The magazine deemed the covers too avant-garde and returned them to Wright. March Balloons is based on one of these covers.

  • 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 7 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.

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 11-1/2" x 11-1/2".
    • Frame width is 2".
    • Any framed tile can pair with our large easel.
    • Note: Frame woodgrain and stain opacity varies.
