6x8 Vienna Woods is based on Carl Otto Czeschka’s “Waldidyll (Forest Idyll),” originally created as a textile design and produced by Vienna’s renowned Wiener Werkstätte artist community circa 1910. Long before it inspired a Motawi tile, this work of art was worn as a caftan by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt.
- Actual tile size: 5-13/16" x 7-13/16"
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.
