Custom Object Framing

We worked with a client who had a special object: a shell encaustic piece. We decided to go with a Tall Flat Slant frame made of maple wood with a white wash finish. Because it is an object, we mounted it to a wood panel and attached it with aluminum “L” hooks patinated to a simpatico dull grey tone. They spoke well to the metal within the piece so the hooks disappeared. We picked out a soft violet tone from the Benjamin Moore color book that worked well with the pinkish quality of the white washed maple frame and the multi-tonal art piece itself.  We next chose to float the piece by 3/4″ from the furthest points.  The overall piece is small and stunning: definitely gallery worthy.
