Large Wenge Frame    



(Click any photo for a close-up view)


Designing and constructing frames for large paintings and other artwork requires careful attention to detail.  Issues include:

The large frame shown above, made from African wenge, was designed and built with these questions in mind.  The finished piece of artwork, measuring about 5.5' high and 6.5' wide, is shown in the left photo above.  The photo on the right shows the back of the frame/artwork, where you can see the vertical and horizontal spines that reinforce the frame as well as the corner braces that also capture the painting securely inside the frame.  Two redundant sets of hangers and heavy duty wires are used to support the combined weight of frame and painting, which was over 70lbs.

Approximate Dimensions

Frames are sized to your specific requirements.  This is especially true for oversized paintings, where frames may need to be low profile so as not to draw attention away from the artwork.  Please call me to discuss your specific needs.
