New Ravenna Mosaics‘ creative director, Sara Baldwin, has created a new range for summer. As part of the Delft Collection, Chinoiserie is a hand-cut jewel glass mosaic, which is shown in marcasite, pewter, mica with a quartz sea glass-finished background.
The collection was inspired by Chinese porcelain from the Netherlands back in the 1600s. The vibrant colour combinations and intricate patterns are inspired by Asian and European influences. The collection has been extended with five new mosaics, including the 17th Century French Chinoiserie design.
Sara says: “It is always inspiring to design with a limited palette – this collection allowed me to explore the myriad of blues beyond the original cobalt used in Delftware. This is a colour combination that has its roots in much of the world, from the Middle and Far East to practically all of Europe.”
The Delft Collection is available in jewel glass or natural stone. Each range is created using the traditional hand-cut method to shape individual pieces of glass, and is made to order at the New Ravenna Mosaics US studio in Virginia.
