Crooked (Asymmetric) Frame
"There was a crooked man and he had a crooked frame...."
No, our client is not crooked. However, his artwork was and he asked Dana, our shop manager, if she could frame it in a very unorthodox way: With a crooked frame that mimicked the art's odd shape. Dana said she would give it a shot. Figuring out the angles to join the frame segments together was a bit challenging, but she pulled it off:
The frame is 17 1/4 x 23 1/8 in size and is made from Larson-Juhl 613674 Cranbrook Ebonized Walnut. It is glazed with True-Vu Optium Museum Acrylic, since we could not use glass due to the odd angles at which we would have had to cut it. Also, we wanted a glazing that was clear, anti-reflective, u/v protective and scratch resistant. Optium Museum Acrylic is all those things, though costlier than even museum glass, but well worth it.
