8x8 Prairie Butterfly - Green

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.

In 1902 the heiress and social activist Susan Lawrence Dana commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to perform a complete remodel of her family's home. A sophisticated integration of architecture, furnishings and decorative arts, the Dana-Thomas House creates a unified statement of the Prairie School aesthetic. It is home to the largest collection of site-specific, original Wright objects, including Wright's iconic art glass Butterfly Chandeliers. Reimagined from an aerial view in 8x8-inch ceramic tile, Prairie Butterfly captures the soft glow that emanates from the chandeliers in this grand space.

  • Actual tile size: 7-13/16" 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 11-1/2" x 11-1/2".
