New Ravenna Mosaics is proud to introduce the new Delft Collection in a blue and white palette of jewel glass. Dutch Deltfware was inspired by Chinese porcelain which was brought to the Netherlands by the United Dutch East India Company in 1620. Emulating the crisp and vibrant color combinations, the Dutch potters covered their earthenware pottery in a white tin glaze and used a cobalt, a metal oxide pigment, to add decorative motifs of daily life.
Inspired by both Asian and European ceramics, Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna Mosaics, has created five new mosaics depicting floral, 17th century French Chinoiserie and classical Roman pineapple border designs. Each uses the traditional hand cut method to shape individual pieces of glass and is made to order in the New Ravenna Mosaics studio on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The Delft Collection is available in jewel glass or natural stone. In glass it is suitable for vertical interior installations. In stone, the mosaics can be installed indoors or out on both floors and walls. New Ravenna Mosaics.
