March 10, 2016 (Exmore, Virginia)….New Ravenna is delighted to introduce the Kiddo collection of mosaics designed by Cean Irminger. The seven joyous designs combine elegant patterns with elements of child’s play. Hare Apparent is a traditional damask populated by frolicking bunnies. Llamas and foxes prance across Otomi, named for the fabled Mexican textile design, with hand cut glass replacing embroidery stitches. What’s In the Box, combines an ancient Roman pattern with whimsical creatures peeking out of geometric blocks. Creatures of the Night star hand shadow puppets; Fleet is comprised of origami sailboats; and paper airplanes zip around Loop De Loop. The jungle animals in Wild Ones are far more friendly than fierce.
Fifteen years ago, Irminger began creating mosaics for New Ravenna. Today, she is an integral member of the company’s design and engineering team. Irminger’s Kiddo collection injects a spirit of fun and innocence into the sophisticated world of mosaics. Irminger says of the collection, “…like a mosaic dust covered Pied Piper, I want to lead the design community to a playful world full of whimsy, bold color and joyful surprises.” Utilizing New Ravenna’s extensive range of materials, many colors and shades of stone, jewel glass, gold glass, and Serenity glass are combined to create the Kiddo collection. Additionally, each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Each mosaic is made by hand in Virginia and can be installed (depending on the materials) indoors or out, on floors or walls.
