Please note: Motawi glazes are applied by hand to each tile, resulting in subtle variations in color and surface texture. No two tiles look exactly the same, and our Moonstone glaze has an especially glorious glaze color range.
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) is recognized worldwide as one of the greatest architects of the 20th century.
Motawi Tileworks’ 6x6 Ennis House decorative tile is adapted from Wright’s concrete block design for the Charles Ennis residence in Los Angeles. Constructed in 1924, the Ennis House is a prime example of both the Mayan Revival style and Wright’s Textile Block System, an innovative building technique of joining blocks of molded concrete with reinforcing steel rods to create elegantly patterned walls.
