Male Cardinal, a ceramic tile from Motawi Tileworks, truly captures the charm and spirit of artist Charley Harper (1922 – 2007). Charley was a self-described “minimalist realist” who was known for featuring elements of nature in his artwork. This tile is based on a print by him, Red and Fed (1970).
A raised-line technique was used in making this decorative tile. The technique forms small ridges which contain the tile’s detailed design and its colorful glaze. It was made by hand in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The tile can be displayed on a wall, using the notch on the back of the tile, or on an easel. The easel, specifically designed for a Motawi tile, is also available to purchase.
