As Seen In: Professional Builder

For more than 75 years, Professional Builder magazine has remained dedicated to serving the needs of the nation’s builders, designers and trade partners — with award-winning content and proven, practical solutions. Professional Builder re-launched in September of 2017 to more than 112,000 home building professionals — 100% of whom have the authority to buy or specify building materials, products and equipment.

Recently, Professional Builder included “The Glade,” a hand-cut jewel glass mosaic from New Ravenna’s Broad Street collection by creative director Cean Irminger, in their feature on tile. Take a peek at the digital version!

From glass field tile and wood-look tile to patterned, textured tile and nature-inspired tile (our “The Glade” mosaic!), Professional Builder provides multiple options for builders and designers interested in using tile in their next project. Of “The Glade,” Professional Builder says, “Using New Ravenna’s Jewel and Serenity glasses in mixed finishes, the handcrafted Broad Street collection of nine glass mosaics is inspired by nature. Each pattern is fully customizable, as are materials and dimensions for residential or commercial interior projects, including use in wall spaces or artistic decor.”

The Broad Street collection is a collaboration by New Ravenna’s own creative team and artists and designers from around the country. The artwork for the collection explores scenes from nature, such as lush greens that create a vertical garden, interlacing patterns of snakeskin, light reflecting on a pool of water, gentle gradations of a misty morning, and a screen of palm fronds.

Cean Irminger is the brains behind “The Glade,” designed in a playful vintage art deco style. Irminger says of Broad Street, “Our muse has always been nature. In this collection, we took scenes and patterns from the outdoors and interpreted them using styles from different artistic periods such as Impressionism, Art Deco illustration, and Realism. We’re thrilled to show off the scope of our abilities and continue the heritage of mosaics as custom works of art. Over the past 26 years, we’ve found that glass is a wonderful material to work with at this level of artistic detail; it also offers us an incredible range of color to play with. Our company resides on “Broad Street” in Exmore, Virginia, and the name is a nod to the history, the people, and the home that helped to shape our artistic vision. The Broad Street collection builds on our past and reflects our commitment to innovation and collaboration.”
