NATURAL SELECTIONS by NEW RAVENNA

NATURAL SELECTIONS

New Ravenna, America’s premiere designer and manufacturer of mosaics for both residential and commercial installations, is pleased to introduce Natural Selections, a collection of 12 mosaics designed by Kevin O’Brien. Each design represents a mosaic interpretation of O’Brien’s velvet textile designs. For this collaboration with New Ravenna, O’Brien sourced designs spanning his twenty year library of artisan creations. Imagery in Natural Selections represents nature inspired geometrics, botanicals, and historical design motifs. Brocade is an interpretation of a classic damask, which originated in the Middle Ages. Vines is a nod to a sinuous William Morris botanical, notable in the 19th century arts and crafts movement. Fretwork is a window to centuries old Moroccan design, the perforations that allow breezes to flow through the stone walls in northern Africa. The primary materials in the collection are glass and stone with brushed brass emulating the metallic threads found in O’Brien’s textiles. A trained artist, O’Brien feels, “glass allows me to think like a painter, and shade my image more freely because of the limitless array of colors available at New Ravenna.”

USAGE: Each pattern can be fully customized with the client’s material preferences to fit the scope of any commercial or residential project. Some shell and brass elements not recommended for exterior usage, heavy traffic floors and wet areas, please check with our representative.
