The Aurora collection consists of 24 mosaic designs hand crafted in natural stone, 24k gold glass, jewel glass, and shell. Each mosaic consists of hundreds of small individual pieces that have been hand cut and assembled by artisans on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Aurora was inspired by Sara Baldwin’s travels to cities steeped in gilded history where architecture is punctuated by flashes of brilliant gold. “My travels to Paris, Istanbul and St. Petersburg became the origins of my thoughts about material cultures that celebrate luxury with texture and contrasting surfaces” says Baldwin. ” I dreamt about these historic patinas that grew only more beautiful with the passage of time.” Every mosaic in this New Ravenna Collection is a custom creation, sized to fit each installation.
