Gingham and Plaid Collection: New Ravenna Glass and Stone
October 11, 2012 (Exmore, Virginia)……….New Ravenna Mosaics is proud to announce a new collection of Plaid and Gingham
mosaics designed by Sara Baldwin.
Available in jewel glass and natural stone the collection is comprised of five classic designs – Rory
. The mosaics are all hand cut and assembled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where New Ravenna Mosaics employs over 100 artisans to create their handcrafted tile designs. Baldwin grew up on a nearby farm and loved gingham and plaid fabric as a child. Her mother taught her to sew and it was these designs reminiscent of her Scottish McCaleb family ancestors that the aspiring designer used for her experiments in fashion. Baldwin remembers, ” The first McCalebs arrived from Scotland in the 1750’s. As a child I was immersed in family lore and creating clothes with traditional Scottish patterns fueled my imagination. These textiles were considered fashionably preppy and so luckily my passion for plaid was considered popular. To create the same classic patterns in glass and stone is a wonderful way to pay homage to my family and those fantastic early creative experiments in design.”
New Ravenna Mosaics supplies both custom and ready to ship
tile for imaginative, sustainable, and durable surfaces. Over 200 remarkable designs are available at tile showrooms throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Dubai. www.newravenna.com
