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.

As written in the Jewish Light, "It all started with a little question: How can we get more people to come to our area of Clayton? The next thing she knew, Faith Berger was accepting the annual Excellence in Retail/Service Award from the Clayton Chamber of Commerce on behalf of a group of dedicated merchants who created the Clayton Triangle. In reality, however, it wasn't that simple."
Faith has accomplised important work extending beyond her business and for an entire community--all becasue of her passion for art work and her love of people. She knows how to bring people together to envision a dream and then make it happen. She is a genuine inspiration.
She is also a genuine Build the Strength Within role model. Tune in and learn the details.

In 2014 The Fearless Are Redeemed!
Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
This year is the time for the rebirthing of new thoughts, new attitude, new actions and responses. To rebirth is to move forward, to let go of that which was old and birth that which is to become new. How much are you willing to let go? How much are you ready to change? What will it take to change?... A THOUGHT...IT'S A MIND THING! (Cass)
