John Derian is one of the most interesting artisans working today. He started making decoupage plates a few years ago, and has branched out from there.
At Halcyon House, we’ve been pleased to carry John’s line of decoupage plates, paperweights and platters, almost since our opening. We have just gotten in a new selection of pieces from his most recent collection, which features gorgeous flowers, mostly taken from antique and vintage prints. Each print is applied to the plate by hand, and then cut to fit exactly. Outline trims are then applied, highlighting the center image.The reverse of the plate is painted, and then a piece of felt is applied, so the plate will not scratch or mar a surface. John signs each piece, ensuring that you have an authentic John Derian plate.
We are proud to carry John Derian’s work, and if you are interested in seeing the full selection of his pieces, please stop by.
As always, if you’re interested in anything you see here, please contact Eric at Halcyon House.
