Grateful Box is an artistic enterprise specializing in the decoupage of boxes begun in 2011 by me, Caroline. I lovingly restore and decoupage each box with Grateful Dead-related images and illustrations. The boxes are found treasures, mostly from thrift and antique stores, ranging in sort from music boxes, jewelry boxes, cigar boxes, bread boxes & even a candle box. Every Grateful Box is a unique piece of art that will never be reproduced. My signature and the year of creation appear engraved on the bottom of each box, and each box has a signature title. Grateful Box is proud to be an Asheville artisan.

I’ve been dabbling in collage since childhood and am tickled to find an application that represents my passion for the Grateful Dead and reveals related artwork from a fresh perspective. The viewer hereby discovers joy in this new encounter with familiar images, similar to listening to a Grateful Dead show where you know every tune but delight in the rediscovery of its magic through varied presentation.

The upcycle art of decoupage utilizes printed images mined from various sources such as CD jackets, books, magazines, calendars, etc. I never, ever make copies of any image out of respect for the artists, photographers, and publishers. My hope is that folks will delight in seeing a new art form evolve from an original creative expression.

Each Grateful Box is triple-thick glazed with a non-toxic water-resistant gloss that makes the decoupage edges and corners seamless. I choose antique boxes to upcycle that are wooden and sturdy, and then permanently affix the images so that each box will not only be shiny and beautiful but also usable and durable. Grateful Boxes are built to last!
