Elixir Fix: Modern Mosaics from New Ravenna Mosaics

I spent some time perusing the interwebs- looking for fun tiles for a client,  when I came across these absolutely GORGEOUS mosaics from New Ravenna Mosaics.  I nearly went bananas and I think you will too. 
New Ravenna Mosaics, founded by Sara Baldwin, features handcrafted stone and glass mosaics.  Mosaics are made in Virginia, and suitable for both residential and commercial installations. Tile is cut and can be tumbled, honed, or treated to create distinctive styles, subtle shade variations, and textures.  New Ravenna Mosaics are sold through exclusive designer showrooms across the country and internationally. The company provides design services along with on-site supervision of installations. 

Here are a few of my favorite collections.  All images copyright New Ravenna Mosaics 2011. 

Silk Road Collection
The Silk Road collection of mosaics feature exotic marbles, honed and polished to produce an interplay of matte and shiny surfaces. Suitable for both interior, exterior, horizontal and vertical applications.

Ikat Collection
A modern interpretation of an ancient textile pattern, the Ikat Collection features three patterns: Loom, Weft and Pamir, and five colorways.  The jewel glass mosaics have a seamless, repeat pattern and should be used for vertical applications only.

Loom Glass Mosaic, Ikat Collection
The mosaics are inspired by the inlay technique which originated in the 17th century India. Baldwin interprets her fascination with the cultures of South Asia, replacing traditional bone and mother of pearl with brilliant jewel glass and natural stone. Suitable for residential, commercial, horizontal and vertical applications.

This collection is a design collaboration with New Ravenna Mosaics and product designer Erin Adams. Adams has been creating mosaics in a twenty year career that has also encompassed housewares and interior design. Known for her vivid palettes and experiments with stained glass, Adams celebrates folk art traditions to mid-century graphics while paying homage to the artists that have inspired her. Stone mosaics are suitable for residential, commercial, interior, exterior, horizontal and vertical applications. Jewel glass mosaics are suitable for interior vertical applications.

New Ravenna Mosaics isn't a new line, they have 2010 & 2011's Interior Design Magazine Best of Year Awards from under their belt, and it's easy to see why.  

Stunning, absolutely stunning.  I can't pick a favorite.  Can you?
