Femme & Function from New Ravenna


October 11, 2021

Femme & Function is a collection of handcrafted mosaics created in celebration of the innovation and artistry of women throughout history. The 20 designs in stone and Glazed Basalto™ were inspired by the legacy of women pioneers in functional art, focusing on five disciplines: quilting, pottery, embroidery, weaving, and textiles. Inspirations span time periods and geography, from ancient Japanese Shibori hand dying techniques, to the use of geometry and subtle palettes by indigenous potters, from the traditional quilting patterns passed down through generations of unknown homemakers, to the natural motifs and painted textile work of the British arts and crafts movement. These designs honor the creative mavens who often worked in obscurity, perfecting humble crafts and transforming traditions.
