Tabernacle Style Frames
The artist came to us with his vision for a frame, so we worked with him to create this simple but elegant frame to showcase his fantasy painting.
Here you can see the detail features on this frame. We cut the shapes out of 1/8\" MDF. He chose to do the entire finish in black to keep the frame secondary to the painting. It is an example of a very sucessful marriage of frame and painting.
A customer came to us wanting something appropriate for her 16th C. religious painting. She knew she wanted a tabernacle style frame and this is the result. We did not order this frame from an outside source. We made it in our shop in St. Paul MN. It has a stenciled pattern on the top and bottom panels and some compo ornaments at the top of the columns.
Artist Robert Olson commissioned us to create a frame for this female nude, to be a centerpiece in his studio. The understated finish with the gilded liner draws the viewer right into the painting.
We made this frame for Stephen Gjertson based on his designs for a number of his frames.This image can also be seen in the Frames for Artists page.
This frame was made for a local church for a painting by Stephen Gjertson. You can also see the image on the Frames for Artists page and the Frames for Churches page.
