Inspired by Wright's iconic Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers artwork, this Motawi tile reimagines this interpretation of a desert landscape.
In 1927, Wright submitted a series of cover designs to Liberty magazine. All were rejected by the editors as too “radical” and were never published. One of these designs was “Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers,” Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image became one of Wright’s most popular and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature for the lobby of the renowned Arizona Biltmore hotel.
