Thoughts on framing, the unacknowledged orphan of the arts. Fruit from the fields of obscurity. Frames, art, techniques.
A small frame, of Art Nouveau design, in 23K gold. An aside, though I like the design, I'm not completely satisfied with the ... balance of this frame. In person, it looks better than in the photo, though.
A much larger frame, in a mid-nineteenth century, Neo-classical style. 5 inches high and 6 inches wide, with hand carved cross grain fluting, and applied, composition ornaments. 23K gold. There have been various posts concerning this frame under construction. Unusual for me, I'm quite satisfied with the way these have turned out, and these ( I made two) have had an enormous amount of problems; far beyond the normal problems that unusual frames are subject to.

If you "borrow" stuff, at least credit me. Don’t be a woozle.
