DÉCOUPAGE: The Art of Transforming with Paper Cut-Outs

The term "decoupage," derived from the French "decouper" (to cut out), finds its roots in East Siberian tomb art and later gained popularity in twelfth-century China.

Around twenty-five years ago in the United States, Alex discovered a unique twist: applying decoupage to glass. A decade of exploration ensued, birthing a history where decoupage on glass became an endless wellspring of inspiration.

Alex's creations, constantly evolving due to the nature of the medium, draw from global vintage images and handcrafted papers, ensuring each piece is a unique design adventure.
