John Derian

 John Derian Company Inc. was established in 1989.  John's prized and collectible decoupage plates, platters and paperweights are handmade in his studio in New York City, where he employs a small staff of artisans to assist with production. We are thrilled to offer his eclectic, artful decoupage works at r.h. ballard.  Decoupage is the art of cutting and gluing images to surfaces. John  Derian, and avid collector of antique fruit, flower, and animal prints, hand-paints borders and patterns over centuries-old ledgers and letters. He combines all these elements into charmingly eccentric collages which are reprinted and pieced together in layers under glass accessories. John Derian personally signs the back side of each piece in his collection.
