EXMORE, VA -- New Ravenna is pleased to introduce the Altimetry collection of mosaics designed by Sara Baldwin and Paul Schatz. The nine designs are handmade in Virginia from natural stone, shell, ceramic and glass. The collection was inspired by the elements of nature when viewed from an elevation above, and the aesthetic of eastern culture.
The collection includes Fraser, a modern dimensional basketweave design with floral decos connecting pillowed stone. Paul Schatz designed Royal Palace, a waterjet and hand-chopped mosaic with a symmetrical design, which is reminiscent of an ancient palace terrace.
"I always look forward to flying, admiring the world's symmetry from above -- the peaks and valleys of mountains, the natural curve of a river, the grid of an urban cityscape," said Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna, when describing the new collection. "Returning home, I often find myself focused on organic patterns like these in my own home. The mosaics in Altimetry were inspired by intricate aerial views and shadowed landscapes. This collection speaks to the beautiful energies, patterns and materials of our world."
Additionally, each pattern can be fully customized with the client's material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Each mosaic is made by hand in Virginia and can be installed (depending on the materials) indoors or out, on floors or walls.
The collection is available at New Ravenna showrooms throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Russia and Dubai. For more information, visit www.newravenna.com.
