New Ravenna is proud to introduce their collaboration with the talented product designer Erin Adams best known for her vivid palettes and experiments with stained glass. She has been creating mosaics over her twenty year career that includes and celebrates folk art traditions to mid-century graphics. Her first exciting mosaic collection for New Ravenna includes twelve designs from continuous line mosaics inspired by still life paintings to African Kente cloth. Bottles is a wonderful example of an abstract still life produced in Moonstone, Opal and Julius.
The Kente design pictured is done in Juhl, Blair, Rolly and Obsidian Jewel Glass and the Floating Fish in Serpentine, Labradonte, Aalto and Opal. She has reproduced the Italian smalti used in stained glass replicating the shape of this material in a riot of color that is evident in her designs from the natural world.
In addition to the core selection of jewel glass colors offered by New Ravenna Mosaics, Adams has incorporated additional opaque hues and named them after the design icons she admires. The collection in stone can be installed on floors and walls both indoors and out and the jewel glass mosaics are suitable for interior vertical installations.
