Upcycled wares inspired by vintage design
Decadia Designs was born out of a love for all things vintage, seeking out good design & bright, jewel colours. All the glass items I produce, use vintage-inspired prints or are vintage items that have been upcycled for modern use. I source each piece individually, searching the darkest corners of secondhand shops and sales for what are often forgotten, uncared for and under-appreciated items. I then select a deep-printed decoupage paper that will complement the colour and shape of the item before hand applying this to the surface of the glass. Many of the items that I upcycle are destined for landfill and so by giving them a new lease of life I hope to do my bit for sustainable living whilst handcrafting something bright and beautiful!
Please be aware that these pieces are not designed for prolonged submersion in water and are not dishwasher safe. My cups and glasses have been upcycled for use as tealight holders rather than their original purpose, while trinket dishes may also be used for serving nibbles and may be rinsed or wiped clean.
