Based on Harper’s original piece, Zoo Babies, Giraffe & a Half captures a tender moment between mother and child, one that unites all members of the Animal Kingdom.
Beloved American illustrator and self-proclaimed minimal realist, Charley Harper’s graphically charged and often humorous depictions of flora and fauna continue to provide Motawi Tileworks with a wealth of imagery that translate perfectly into tile. Motawi’s unique mastery of the Cuenca technique of tile-making make it possible to give the animals of Harper’s colorfully whimsical world a new life in a new medium.

Each of our Motawi art tiles are designed and made by the artisans at Motawi Tileworks in Ann Arbor, Michigan. These hand-made, historically informed art tiles are created for distinctive installations and as art pieces.
Motawi Tileworks was founded in 1992 by Nawal Motawi, who started making tiles in her garage and selling them at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market next to the rutabaga sellers. Nawal's motto: It's fun to be good! (at what you do) Motawi art tiles are now sold in galleries across the United States.
