Large format frames

I make special frames, boxes or structures for artists where there is no off-the-shelf solutions available to meet their requirements.

This frame is shellac finished Beech and acrylic with plywood back.

The artist created a series of drawings titled The Poisoned City about the Flint Michigan water crisis.

The frame needed to protect the art work and be strong enough to support the weight of the Plexiglas while at the same time being unobtrusive.

Chinese inspired frames

I make special frames, boxes or structures for artists where there is no off-the-shelf solutions available to meet their requirements.

This set of frames are 36in x 62in made from stained Honduras Mahogany and acrylic.

The artist created a series of large Chinese inspired paintings to be mounted in Chinese-styled frames. The frames needed to have a thin delicate look while at the same time be strong enough to hold the paintings and their heavy acrylic fronts.

Frames for special requirements

Size: 12.5in x 18.5in x 1.5in

Birds Eye Maple frame with inlays of Walnut and Padauk.

The challenge was to build a frame to display the beauty of this very old bone and bamboo mahjong set which had been stored away in a box for about 75 years. The set came with 4 brass "winds" that were incorporated into the edges of the frames. The box is lined with felt with felt-covered spacers to keep the pieces firmly in place and the back is screwed on for additional strength.
