Originally painted in 2005, Birch Bark & Birds shows three nuthatches playing amongst birch trees, a common setting for many of Charley Harper’s pieces. The nuthatches provide a touch of color and energy to the forest scene while the birch trees display the simple, geometric beauty that Harper found in all aspects of nature. This 8x8 tile’s playful scene and intricate design make this a must have for all Motawi fans.
- Mid-century modern meets Motawi mastery in these tiles based on the work of celebrated wildlife artist Charley Harper (1922-2007), a self-described "minimal realist."
- Actual tile size: 7-13/16" square
- Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
Nawal Motawi had a start of handcrafting her work out of her own home garage in 1992 in Ann Arbor. Still handcrafting tiles but now at a larger scale with a team of 30 artisans to craft each piece. Inspired by nature, Charley Harper and Frank Lloyd Wright. Nawal has created a distinguished tile line. Each one wholeheartedly made by hand in Michigan.
