New Ravenna Mosaics, famous for its amazing mosaic backsplash designs, is proud to introduce their collaboration with 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. In addition to the core selection of jewel glass colors offered by New Ravenna Mosaics, Adams has incorporated additional opaque hues and named them after the design icons she admires. Aalto, Girard, Knoll, Ponti, Zeisel and Eames all have a place in her personal color vocabulary. They certainly should find the way in your glass mosaic splashback.
The first Erin Adams collection for New Ravenna Mosaics includes twelve designs ranging from the continuous line mosaics inspired by Italian still life painter Giorgio Morandi to African textile kente cloth. Adams has playfully reproduced venerable Italian smalti in stained glass, replicating the shape of the legendary material in a riot of colors - all resulting in incredibly vivid mosaic tile backsplash.
Pop plays significantly in her treatment of objects from the natural world - flowers, coral, clouds, fish, and hearts. Erin Adams turns drops of water into mod cartoons, using black and white stone, artfully allowing the grout to play a significant role. She always wanted to create a happy and refreshing collection of kitchen backsplashes with the patterns in white and a contrasting grout color, as this allows the pattern to speak for itself in a clean and defined way. In the white mosaics grout becomes part of the design element.
The Erin Adams Collection for New Ravenna Mosaics in stone can be installed on floors and walls both indoors and out. The jewel glass mosaics are suitable for interior vertical installations.
