The fresh, vibrant colors of spring are celebrated in new mosaics from Sara Baldwin, founder and creative director of New Ravenna Mosaics. Made entirely by hand in Virginia, the glass mosaic splashback designs are inspired by the inlay technique which originated in the 17th century India. Baldwin interprets her fascination with the cultures of South Asia, replacing traditional bone and mother of pearl with brilliant jewel glass and natural stone. Fiona, Jacqueline Vine and Climbing Vine are delicate organic Glass mosaic splashbacks that represent growth and renewal.

Baldwin says, My travels have taken me around the world where I delight in discovering ancient methods and patterns. I bring these ideas home to Virginia and interpret them them using the materials of my craft, stone and glass. One of my greatest challenges is to take an extremely hard and durable surface and make it appear soft and flowing, which to me, is the essence of spring.
