Aspen is a hand-cut stone mosaic and can be created from materials such as polished Calacatta Tia, St. Laurent, Persian Gold, 24K Gold Glass, Kay’s Green, Spring Green, Driftwood, Travertine Noce, Thassos…and the list goes on and on. We’ve always thought this mosaic was stunning and feature worthy, and this weekend, the New York Times agreed!
On Saturday, March 3, we woke up to the digital release of Telling a Story Through Tiles in The New York Times (the print version will release on Thursday, March 8). The piece digs into the beauty of contemporary mosaics and features the bathroom of New Ravenna client, Gerry Eisenberg in Aiken, South Carolina. Last summer, Gerry installed our Aspen mosaic in her bathroom, complete with 24-karat gold accents, and the final product is breathtaking. Gerry says, “What is more wonderful than mosaic? What is more traditional?” she said. “But mosaic with gold glass to give it that modern zip.”
The Times also spoke with our creative director, Cean Irminger. Cean shares that our mosaics can be “super intricate and detailed,” which lends to the fact that mosaics are no longer just associated with the ancient Romans or churches and cathedrals. Mosaics can be customized with almost any material, any colorway, any size and can be installed in kitchens, backsplashes, showers, floors, pools, etc.
Today, Gerry is more satisfied than ever with her bathroom, stating that it brings color, light and a sense of artistry into her home.
“Every time I go in there,” she says, “it’s enchanting.”
