New Ravenna Introduces Trove Mosaic Tile Collection
New Ravenna is pleased to introduce Trove, a collection of six mosaics designed by Sara Baldwin. The mosaics are handcrafted by artisans in Virginia using natural stone and lustrous brass and aluminum.
Sara Baldwin was inspired to create a collection that captures the layered colors, patterns, shapes, and illusions of texture, found in the night sky. The mosaics portray stars illuminated against the matte edges of darkness and abstract patterns accentuated by gleaming metallics. She chose cloudy, grey-blue marbles like Bardiglio and Pacifica to illustrate a moody sky in Michael and Simone, while in other patterns such as Astronomy and Orion, stars are intentionally appointed amongst pitch-black Nero Marquina.
Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna, says of Trove, “Growing up on a farm, our nightly activities often included stargazing. I became appreciative of the patterns and textures since I always had an expanse of uninterrupted night sky to fuel my imagination. When I was conceptualizing Trove, I wanted to recreate the impression of a matte surface juxtaposed with glimmer. We used metallics to impart both texture and the subtle hint of wavering light you experience when gazing at the night sky. The result is a treasure trove of celestial mosaics.”
Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Every mosaic in the Trove Collection can be installed indoors or out, on floors or walls.
The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Dubai.
