A Unique Mat Treatment
The client asked to use magazine pages with images from St. Paul's Cathedral in Pittsburgh for the mat.
Civil War family historical display
My great great grandfather, Henry Cook served in the 139th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Volunteers. The shadow box contains buttons from his uniform. The bottom right button is that of the Army Corps of Engineers.
Pin depicting Company K and 139th Regiment is shown at left, and daguerreotype on the right.
A letter on the left is written in German from Camp Pierpont to a friend. A receipt on the right is for a package delivery in 1863. A daguerreotype of the soldier shown with his gun below is above the receipt.
LED Backlight Project
Client Laura Grunert from Jane of All Trades brought another challenge into the shop. Laura has provided many opportunities to learn new ways to frame unusual pieces of art. This was a 24" square piece of 1/8" stained glass that she wanted illuminated, using back lighting.
The usual LED tape lighting around the inside of the frame was not acceptable, since that would have created a dead dark space in the center. A fellow framer, Diane Transue, suggested a company called Photo Glow, which makes custom lighting for photos and other type of artwork. It worked great. The light comes with a remote, which can be used as a dimmer as well.
