ABOUT THE ARTIST

Osmunda is operated out of a Brooklyn, New York apartment by an artist/ musician.

ABOUT THE MATERIALS

What makes Osmunda so special is that we use only the BEST materials for our art.

Osmunda uses original artistic papers,prints, and ephemera wherever possible. This means that Osmunda plates are one-of-a-kind art, made for the love of the process and materials, and are the best quality.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE

These artworks are made using the decoupage-under-glass (reverse decoupage) technique. If you are not familiar with this technique, it involves "working backwards", adhering papers underneath the glass surface rather than on top. The underside of the glass is then sealed and painted, sanded until very smooth, and varnished.

The finished product is water-resistant, durable, and beautiful. Glass may be wiped back and front with a damp cloth to clean, but should not be submerged in water. Not microwave or dishwasher safe.

Some of the designs are backed in felt to protect both the plate and the surface it is placed on. In other circumstances, when it seems that the felt would detract from the beauty of the piece, no felt is used. In fact, sometimes the paper that's used is so beautiful on back and front, that we decide not to paint the back of the plate at all, and instead just coat it with durable clear varnish.
