In 1902, the heiress and social activist Susan Lawrence Dana commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to perform a complete remodel of her family's home. A sophisticated integration of architecture, furnishings, and decorative arts, the Dana-Thomas House creates a unified statement of the Prairie School aesthetic.
The house is home to the largest collection of site-specific, original Wright objects, including Wright's iconic art glass Butterfly Chandeliers. Reimagined from an aerial view in 8x8-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. The company embraces variation and handmade beauty with time-honored methods which produce a nuanced range of color with depth and translucence.
Actual Tile Size: Approximately 7 7/8” x 7 7/8”. As each Motawi tile is crafted by hand, dimensions may vary slightly by up to 1/16".
Tiles are 5/8" thick and have a notch at the back for hanging.
