6x8 Raven Tile (Yoshiko Yamamoto) by Motawi Tileworks
6x8 Raven Tile (Yoshiko Yamamoto) by Motawi Tileworks is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.
Handmade in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Artist Yoshiko Yamamoto is a self-taught block printmaker who strives always to fuse Japanese design sensibility with fine craftsmanship. Several years ago, Nawal Motawi, a longtime admirer of Yoshiko's work, approached her for a collaboration. Motawi thought Yamamoto's bold prints would work well as a raised-line tile design. She was right. Yamamoto's graceful, swaying scenes brought the clay to life.
"Raven" is inspired by a print Yamamoto created to convey her own fascination with the bird.
