The Miraflores Collection by Paul Schatz for New Ravenna Mosaics
Paul Schatz’s Miraflores Collection of hand crafted tiles for Ravenna Mosaics are complex abstractions of classic motifs.
The designs are a fusion of different influences, from Schatz’s travels throughout the Latin countries of Spain, Portugal and Mexico, to his passion for Morocco and his studies of Islamic geometric art. The name ‘Miraflores’ means “to watch flowers” in Spanish.
The tiles are created in natural stone and can be installed as floors and walls, inside and out.
Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna Mosaics, explains: “Paul and I worked for many years together as he designed custom mosaics for each of the elegant architectural projects that we created for him here in Virginia. It was clear to me that he had a wealth of inspired ideas from his tremendous love and experience in Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial architecture and interiors, and so for him to create a complete collection was a natural evolution for us.”
