Decorative, Functional Glassware

I have always been fascinated by the cultural intersection of East and West, being of half Asian-half European descent myself. Using the centuries-old technique of decoupage, with inspiration from artist Viveca Moller, I have found a medium by which to express myself artistically. Combining European motifs with Asian landscapes and backgrounds, I create functional, decorative glassware – each piece being unique and expressing its own story. For me, art should be not just beautiful but surprising. It should be pragmatic but also idealistic. Artistic AND experimental. Whether it is a bowl, vase, or jar, I enjoy bending paper into complex origami that plays with shape, light, and color.
