6x8 Saguaro - Green

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century.

In 1927, Wright submitted a series of cover designs for Liberty Magazine. All four designs were rejected by the editors at the time who deemed them too “radical” and the covers were never published. One of those designs, Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers, depicts Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image is now one of Wright’s most popular designs and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature of Arizona’s famous Biltmore Hotel lobby.

Re-imagined by Motawi as a 6x8 ceramic tile, Saguaro reflects Wright’s stylized vision in a unique colorway.

  • Actual tile size: 5 13/16" x 7-13/16"

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 11-1/2".
