Vashti, a hand-cut mosaic shown in polished Dolomite, Silver Sage, and polished Goldenrod Glazed Basalto™ by New Ravenna.

December 15, 2020  (Exmore, Virginia) … New Ravenna, America’s premier designer and manufacturer of mosaics for both residential and commercial installations, is pleased to present Vashti, a hand crafted mosaic in the Pantone Color of the Year, a weathered grey and warm vibrant yellow. Pantone considers the combination, “A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.”

Cean Irminger, creative director of New Ravenna, on the 2021 colors,”The color combo of ultimate gray and illuminating yellow brings to mind the plumage of songbirds in the Warbler family and it makes me happy to think of these cheerful, hardworking birds setting the tone of the New Year. This past long, strange year many of us turned to nature and birdwatching specifically to take our minds away from the anxiety of current events. There is always a zing of excitement when you hear the happy songs of the warblers, or catch a flash of their yellow feathers, and it gives such a sense of calm to watch fellow creatures completely unaffected by the news of the day. The Pantone selections for 2021 evoke these little dynamos, and it thrills me to imagine them calmly guiding us into the New Year with their everyday grit, hopeful song, and gorgeous plumage.”

Vashti is part of the Glazed Basalto™ collection and is shown in two variations, which emphasize the versatility of the design, the creation of mosaics, and the depth of Glazed Basalto in grey. Glazed Basalto is a natural stone exclusive to New Ravenna in the United States and maintains its pigmented color glaze in every iteration. 

Vashti can be installed on walls and floors, indoors and out. New Ravenna products are available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.  #757.442.3379
