The Arts and Crafts movement of late nineteenth-century Britain spurred a renaissance in the applied and decorative arts in the United States. Drawing inspiration from nature and from the materials with which they worked, American artisans set out to produce objects of utility and beauty at affordable prices. At the forefront of this movement was the ceramics industry.Inspired by the glazes and designs of that era, Motawi Tileworks in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has carried on the Arts and Crafts tradition since its founding in 1992. Today the company produces over ten thousand square feet of handcrafted art tile each year, drawing appreciative collectors of its own. This calendar showcases a selection of Motawis classic ceramic tiles.All of Pomegranates calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
