  • Motawi Tileworks
    To become a finished Motawi Tileworks tile, slabs of raw clay must run the gauntlet of an elaborate production line, where they'll be crushed under a 60-ton press, dipped or drizzled in colorful glaze, and fired in a kiln at 2,000 degrees. Though the handmade process lends itself to variations in colors, it creates uniformly durable tiles built to withstand the heat of a fireplace, the splashing of a kitchen sink, or the futility of existence atop a shelf. The company's artisans have handmade their tiles in Ann Arbor for two decades. They draw on this experience while creating three types of tiles: flat field, polychrome, and molded. Each catches eyes on its own, or transforms into an artful mosaic when mixed and matched. During the design process, the craftsmen draw inspiration from a huge range of American influences, from Native American artists to Frank Lloyd Wright.

  • Glass Shack Studio
    The sunlight streaming through Glass Shack Studio's second-story windows sets shards of stained glass ablaze in a rainbow of hues, sending glints of colored light dancing across crafting tables. Shaped by specialized cutting tools and anchored by grout, these glass pieces will eventually form colorful mosaics like those displayed on the studio's chartreuse walls, which double as a gallery for local artisans. During workshops and classes, owner and founder Haley Alcock calls on her background in elementary and middle-school education to swiftly explicate the nearly 3,500-year-old art form, teaching students to assemble glittering landscapes, abstract designs, and portraits of their favorite light bulbs.

  • Golden Apple
    Geology guru Bill Rotay stocks The Golden Apple's shelves with sterling silver and semiprecious-gemstone jewelry, drawing from his University of Michigan degree and lifelong adoration of sparkling baubles. The shop's name alludes to the Greek myth that amber was harvested from the garden of Hesperides, where immortality-bestowing golden apples grew. Over the course of more than a decade, the store's original, predominantly amber, inventory blossomed to include a collection of Chinese freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and gemstones from Thailand, Mexico, Bali, and India. The Golden Apple also peddles a variety of mineral rocks and pottery, as well as fossils of ancient organisms and Betamax tapes.
