Motawi Tileworks has been selected to design and create the custom winner's trophy for the inaugural LPGA Volvik Championship, taking place May 23 through 29 at Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor, Mich.
The trophy, designed by Nawal Motawi, founder and owner of Motawi Tileworks, is the first of its kind for the tile company.
The 12-inch trophy tile will be pressed on a 60-ton RAM press with a custom mold that weighs over 100lbs. After nearly a week in the drying and kiln-firing process, the tile will be hand glazed using bulb syringes, then re-fired, creating a colorful and unique finished piece that will be presented to the tournament champion on May 29.
The golf tournament will support the University of Michigan’s location for the National Network of Depression Centers that houses the Military Support Programs and Networks (MSPN). MSPN provides pre- and post- deployment mental health support and treatment for military members, veterans and their families.
