The Spring 2019 edition of Beautiful Kitchens & Baths Magazine includes the highly-anticipated “30 Innovative Products We Love” list and New Ravenna is so honored to have snagged a coveted spot this year!
Smart technology, sophisticated style, and practical function come together in these award-winning products that are changing the way we think about kitchen and bath design. In 2019, Beautiful Kitchens & Baths Magazine selected our “Plume” triptych mosaic among many other products: faucets, quartz counter tops, ventilation systems, light fixtures, modern toilets, kitchen appliances, LED lanterns, and more.
The complex details of the Plume mosaic panels depict pheasant and guinea hen feathers. Set against pitch-black matte Obsidian glass, organic colors emerge, creating a unique mosaic, which replicates each feather. There are 18 colors of glass in each glossy plume, which merge into a hand crafted hyperrealistic portrait. Grouted in eight different colors, the elegant details are a testament to the art of mosaic and the beauty of nature.
Creative director, Cean Irminger, says, “When we began work on this series, the idea was to create an image of many overlapping feathers with a chiaroscuro effect for depth. However, once we reviewed the photographs, we realized that each feather was a natural work of art in and of itself and deserved to be treated as such. We instead decided to create separate specimen studies rendered in monumental scale to magnify the nuanced complexities and drama found in a single feather. The Plume panels blend the beauty of the natural world with the astonishing talent of our master mosaicists.”
The three 4 ft. x 7 ft. feather panels took one month to create. The feathers include hand-cut pieces of jewel glass in Jasper, Lavastone, Schist, Tourmaline, Tortoiseshell, Tiger’s Eye, Amber, Agate, Quartz, Labradorite, Pearl, Opal, Moonstone, Alabaster, Sardonyx, Ruby, Garnet, and Carnelian. The background is Obsidian with a matte Sea Glass finish. The Plume series and all other New Ravenna mosaics are available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai. www.newravenna.com #757.442.3379
