November 4, 2014 (Exmore, Virginia) — New Ravenna is pleased to introduce the Aurora Collection designed by New Ravenna. The collection consists of 24 mosaic designs hand crafted in natural stone, 24k gold glass, jewel glass, and shell. Each mosaic consists of hundreds of small individual
pieces that have been hand cut and assembled by artisans on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Aurora was inspired by Sara Baldwin’s travels to cities steeped in gilded history where architecture is punctuated by flashes of brilliant gold. “My travels to Paris, Istanbul and St. Petersburg became the origins of my thoughts about material cultures that celebrate luxury with
texture and contrasting surfaces” says Baldwin. ” I dreamt about these historic patinas that grew only more beautiful with the passage of time.”
Every mosaic in the Aurora Collection is a custom creation, sized to fit each installation.
New Ravenna is America’s premier designer and manufacturer of custom stone and glass mosaics for both residential and commercial installations. The handcrafted mosaics are fashioned into decorative borders, murals, fields, and medallions. Mosaic materials are polished, tumbled, honed and cut to create distinctive styles, subtle shade variations and textures. The installations are custom works of art in mosaic tile, which often incorporate the designs of architects, interior designers and their clients.
New Ravenna mosaics are found in homes, restaurants, hotels, casinos, and businesses around the world, and are available for purchase through designer showrooms across the country and internationally.
