Delft Collection by New Ravenna Mosaics

Drawing inspiration from Dutch Delftware, the Delft Collection from New Ravenna Mosaics is a exploration of crisp blues on white backgrounds. Founder and creative director, Sara Baldwin has created five new mosaics depicting floral, 17th century French Chinoiserie, and classical Roman pineapple border designs.

Each mosaic uses the traditional hand cut method to shape individual pieces of glass.

Baldwin has memories of her mother's treasured blue and white porcelain. "I remember the beautiful blue and white china my mother brought home from Nova Scotia. It was made in England and was so fresh in its simplicity. 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."

Baldwin continues, "This is a color combination that has its roots in much of the world, from the Middle and Far East to practically all of Europe. Here we immediately think of warm beaches and cool coastal interiors. The Delft Collection is our modern American interpretation of a centuries old familiar craft, which we hope will create memories for the next generation."

    Who is the New York City sales rep for New Ravenna? Formerly we purchased through Artistic Tile.

    no one are doing better quality and design than New ravenna!!!

  • giovanni barbieri says:

    Artistic Tile is only able to copy New Ravenna design and produce in China. No style, no custom made, no passion. Just money.

  • giovanni barbieri says:

    probably…one factory in the world working better than new ravenna…the Vatican Mosaic School and Lab in Rome….only for the Pope…

  • Christine Campbell says:

    Hello and thank you for the article and comments! While we began primarily with stone mosaics over 20 years ago, in the last years we have added many more hand cut and water jet glass mosaics to our library. We work closely with some of America’s greatest sheet glass makers and can get almost any shade of glass created for our mosaic work. Seeing these saturated blues, the message is clear, Delft!
