Frank Lloyd Wright Emerald Olive Hill Tile

Barnsdall Art Park, home to the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House, overlooks Los Angeles from atop Olive Hill. In the early 1900s, heiress Aline Barnsdall envisioned the property as a new artistic community to be comprised of more than 40 buildings designed by Wright. Most of these buildings were planned but never constructed, like a school called the “Little Dipper” Community Playhouse. Wright’s “Little Dipper” plans incorporated many textile block designs, including the one that inspired Motawi Tileworks’ 6x6 Olive Hill tile. Wright’s unexecuted design now finds new life in ceramic as a Motawi decorative tile and installation element. Motawi tiles are made with a custom mix of clays and pressed from original plaster molds. Every tile is hand-glazed and embossed on the back for authenticity. At approximately 5/8 inches thick, every tile has a notch in the back for hanging unframed. Made in the USA. To clean, wipe with a damp cloth using mild soap. Ceramic. Measure 6 x 6 in.
