Flashes of brilliance: Aurora collection by New Ravenna

Introducing the Aurora collection by Sara Baldwin for New Ravenna. The collection is inspired by “travels to cities steeped in gilded history where architecture is punctuated by flashes of brilliant gold.” Each of the 24 mosaic designs is handcrafted using natural stone, 24k gold glass, jewel glass and shell. Assembled by artisans in Virginia, every pattern in the collection comes together from hundreds of small pieces. Mosaics in the Aurora collection are unique because every mosaic is custom-made, sized to fit each installation.

New Ravenna Mosaics works with architects and interior designers to create custom mosaic tile for homes, stores, restaurants and other businesses. The company’s stone and glass tiles are handcrafted, and incorporated into decorative boarders, murals, field tile and medallions. Based in Exmore Virginia, New Ravenna Mosaics can be found in showrooms worldwide.
