Michael Golden is striving to bring mosaics to the masses.
At Avenue Mosaic, the RISD grad and alumnus of Hastings Tile (he says he got started with a part-time job that turned into a full-time career there) Golden likes to spot emerging trends, match them, and then produce them in quanties.
“By looking at multiple visual sources, I pull things out to see what potential shapes and forms are coming into vogue – and develop that it in the manufacturing process,” he says.
Avenue Mosaic, Inc. has announced the availability of the Limelight Collection through Dune Ceramica. The Limelight collection was designed by company founder and creative director Michael R Golden for exclusive global distribution by Dune Ceramica. This new line of mosaic glass tile offers a stunning blend of metallic sheen and abstract shapes, resulting in brilliant, sophisticated looks for interior wall applications. Avenue Mosaic will be attending Coverings (booth #5254), so you can see these beauties up-close.
Today on the show I have guest Michael Golden who is the Owner and Creative Director of Avenue Mosaic.
Michael shares his journey on his path to business ownership, including some of his successes and struggles along the way. Here’s a little more about Michael…
Designed by Michael R. Golden for Dune, the Groove Collection of glass tiles comes in three color options: Salsa, Reggae, and Blues. Salsa features brown tones and has a shiny or matte finish; Reggae has brown, golden, and copper tones with a matte metalized finish; and Blues features shades of that hue with a rustic finish.
