Introducing the Illusions Collection from New Ravenna
From New Ravenna is the Illusions Collection designed by Sara Baldwin and Paul Schatz. The collection consists of seven mosaic designs hand-crafted in natural stone, jewel glass and shell. The optical patterns are available in multiple colorways of organic tones inspired by land and sea. The mosaics have been hand-cut and assembled by artisans on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Baldwin is fascinated with the challenge of creating texture on a flat surface. She says, “texture can be a physical combination of different materials by integrating shell, stone and glass to create surface harmonies and reflections. Or texture can be implied by adapting classic three dimensional patterns that have been explored throughout history. The storied legacy of these designs give them a sense of grandeur while being still completely modern and fresh. Integrating scale, color and materials brings the compelling illusions into our time.”
Every mosaic in the Illusions Collection is a custom creation, sized to fit each installation. The mosaics can be installed on both vertical and horizontal surfaces, indoors and out. The Illusions Collection is available at all New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.
