Saguaro Forms Green 6" x 8" Tile
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 6 x 8 ceramic tile, Saguaro Forms reflects Wright’s stylized vision in a unique colorway.
Motawi tiles are striking art pieces and installation accents. Each tile is made by hand and with heart in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Embracing variation and handmade beauty, Motawi's time-honored methods produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
As each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16".
