Dana Thomas House Prairie Butterfly Green 8" x 8" Tile
In 1902 the heiress and social activist Susan Lawrence Dana commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to perform a complete remodel of her family's home. The house was later owned by Charles and Nanette Thomas. 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. Re-imagined from an aerial view in 8 x 8-inch ceramic tile, Prairie Butterfly captures the soft glow that emanates from the chandeliers in this grand space.
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".
