Happy Friday!

Before the weekend comes here are some of this weeks highlight we framed right here in San Francisco!

We love photography, especially black and white and we couldn't be more thrilled to pick mats and frames for these wonderful pieces of art. First a photograph by Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925-1972), Photographer from Kentucky . And second an antique photo paper advertising for Ansco, a photographic brand name that manufactured film, paper and cameras from the mid 1800s til 1980s.

We opted for a nice, heavy steel welded frame and clean white mat for the Meatyard photograph and a wooden grainy, rustic frame with a soft silk mat for the old Ansco advertising paying respect to both, tradition in framing photographs as well as conserving fragile art with museum quality framing materials.

Two completely different approaches to custom framing

We wanted to show you two completely different approaches for framing contemporary art!

For the first image we framed this Josef Albers print in an Optium faced acrylic box! We did a raised float on a cream fabric panel for a bit of texture and depth. Optium glazing offers the least reflection and as an acrylic material and is also scratch resistant!

The second piece is a print from Cleon Peterson! We floated this one on a black silk in a French style ornate frame to play on the dark vibe he always invokes. 

Talking about Custom made...

Watch this video below how we customized this @pauljacksonlives print!  We hand-stippled the bottom mat to go with his meticulous shading style. Good way to keep the design unique and simple, yet effective in the welded steel frame.
