Signature Heirloom Framing - An Exclusive and Signature Addition to the art I create. Immortalize your memories with an exquisite, handmade, wooden and Custom Convex (domed glass) frame. I am a supplier for some of the most exceptional and rare heirloom frames available on the market to date. The quality, craftsmanship and unique characteristics of these frames is truly one of a kind and is an exclusive and signature addition to my studio.
My framing company has over 50 years experience in bending and fitting antique-replica convex glass.
A Little History - Although these picture frames make up less than 5% of all picture frames produced today, this has not always been the case. Over half the picture frames produced in America by some of the largest picture frame factories in the late 1800’s up to about 1940 were oval, round or antique octagon. A large percentage of these frames were family portraits that were then covered with convex glass. Today, many attics and basements are home to these family heirlooms framed in antique frames and and often broken convex bubble glass.
My Mission - I strive to accommodate this forgotten tradition and am dedicated to bringing it back into the modern world. In providing such a rare product, my hope is to sustain a lasting, meaningful and beautiful connection with my clients; making your investment with me a rare and unique experience.
To date, mine is the only studio locally that provides this service, and to my knowledge - I’m one of only a handful nationally.
Heirloom framing begins at $175 and does not have to be ordered right away. I keep this option open to families who have booked with me for up to a year after. Simply let me know when you’re ready to invest.
I can accommodate many different styles, shapes and sizes and look forward to committing myself to providing your family with long-lasting family heirlooms.
“Gorgeous traditions build the framework of a family, let me be a building block for your traditions.”
