Nawal Motawi joins us to talk about her journey from art school graduate to founder of an award-winning Ann Arbor-based nationally known art studio that creates unique handmade tile reflecting the classic styles and craftsmanship of 20th Century American design.
Nawal Motawi founded Motawi Tileworks more than 20 years ago. A University of Michigan art school graduate with a restless spirit and an interest in applied arts, she moved to Detroit to learn tilemaking at Detroit’s storied Pewabic Pottery. She returned to Ann Arbor after a few years and began making her own tiles in a garage studio and selling them from a stand she rented at the local farmers’ market. Today, Nawal is still designing and making tiles in Ann Arbor. Her companies, Motawi Tileworks and Rovin Ceramics, employ more than 30 people. The tiles are sold in over 400 stores across the United States.
The Motawi business philosophy:
We make distinctive ceramics in a healthy way. We share our story. And we have fun.
We believe that we can make the world a better place by making beautiful things for everyday places and modeling healthy company practices.
How do we do this?
We make things that are valued for their design and quality.
We cultivate an intentional workplace culture that fosters constant improvement, positivity and consistently high performance.
Listen to learn how she made the move from her first art classes to a successful business owner, plus her best tips for building a sustainable career in the arts.

"Black Africa, including British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish possessions and the independent states of Abyssinia and Liberia and leaving out of our account Egypt and North Africa, on one hand, and South Africa, on the other, has an area of 8,200,000 square miles and a population of well over one hundred Millions of black men, with less than one hundred thousand whites...
The Statistics South Africa Census 2011 showed that there were about 4,586,838 white people in South Africa, amounting to 8.9% of the country's population. This is a 6.8% increase since the 2001 census.
"Commercial exploitation in Africa has already larger results to show than most people realize. Annually $200,000,000 worth of goods was coming out of Africa before the World War, including a third of the world's rubber, a quarter of the world's cocoa, and practically all of the world's cloves, gum -Arabic, and Palm oil. In exchange there was being returned to Africa one hundred millions in cotton cloth, twenty five millions in iron and steel, and as much in foods, and probably twenty five million in liquors."W.E.B.DuBois
The African continent is richly endowed with mineral resources – this cannot be disputed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) ranks Africa as the largest or second-largest reserve worldwide for bauxite (the main source of aluminium), cobalt (used to make alloys and batteries), industrial diamonds (needed to cut hard materials), manganese (the anticorrosive element in steel), phosphate rock (a key ingredient in fertilisers), platinum group metals (a primary component in automotive catalytic convertors), soda ash (an element in glass production), vermiculite (a component in fireproof materials) and zirconium (used to manufacture heat-resistant ceramic materials).

Marc Gorlin Founder and CEO of Roadie, Inc.

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 2:00 pm - EXPOSITION with Valerie Thomas and Mike Thompson featuring Chuck Maxam, proprietor of the JUST FIRED CERAMIC STUDIO. Ceramics are generally made by taking mixtures of clay, earthen elements, powders, and water and shaping them into desired forms. Once the ceramic has been shaped, it is fired in a high temperature oven known as a kiln. Often, ceramics are covered in decorative, waterproof, paint-like substances known as glazes. Chuck is such an artist who will discuss various aspects of his business.

We invite you to listen and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
The creative collaboration between Kranitzky and Overstreet began in 1985 when a mutual interest in ceramics prompted them to create mixed-media jewelry to raise funds for a kiln. The serendipitous flourishing of this project launched their collaborative venture known then as Lost & Found. Over the years their jewelry has evolved into intricate, narrative brooches which are now in permanent museum collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Collection: National Museum of Contemporary American Craft and the Design Museum Helsinki, Finland. Robin and Kim have participated in many exhibitions over the years and their work is featured in numerous publications. The Kranitzky & Overstreet studio is located in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

Removing Inanimate Objects from Bodies
"Another type is assault sorcery, in which the sor-cerer uses magic to render the victim unconscious and then insert objects such as needles into the body or removes internal organs. Another form is projec-tile sorcery that involves ‘shooting’ things (such as pieces of glass or wire) magically into the body of the victim. Other forms of sorcery considered par-ticularly powerful use ‘spirits’ of either the dead or the living to attack the victim."
Walt Realer Story
I graduated from Academy Park HS in Sharon Hill. I attended Virginia Stat Univ and Delaware County Community College. I held a number of jobs working for the post office, ups, iron mountain before getting a job with General Electric back in 1992. I worked there for almost 11 years before the plant was closed. During that time in 1996 my mother started the cleaning service. I worked for the company part time just to help out and make a few extra bucks. When my plant closed in August of 2002 I went home and talked to my wife about layoffs and working for someone else. I told her I was thinking of working the business full time. She said she had my back. I spoke to my mother and took on the day to day responsibilities of working the business. I've had a number of clients over years. Iron Mountain being the first. Then came First African Baptist Church in Sharon Hill. Neighbor to Neighbor also in Sharon Hill. Both of which are still clients today. St Paul's Baptist Church, Edward Jones in Springfield. I ran successful campaigns with living social and groupon. Done a lot of residential and commercial work as well. Our services range from carpet cleaning, general cleaning, janitorial service, wood floor restoration, stripping and waxing of tile floors and power washing. We've also done some auto detailing and snow removal from time to time. I was a member of the rotary club of eastwick pa. I coached little league football for the Christopher Arnold Athletic Association
