Origami Cranes in Shadowbox Picture Frame
There is always something interesting to put in a picture frame. Artist Gloria Denoon brought us her origami crane art to have displayed in a shadowbox frame. The cranes are individually made and then sewn together, like a net.
Our picture framing designers worked with Gloria to come up with a look that matched this unique piece of art. A bluish grey velour matboard was chosen for the background, which the origami crane "net" was sewn to. An antiqued gold frame was chosen. The picture frame has depth, allowing for plenty of space for the cranes to "live within". Notice how our picture framer also built up the matboard on the sides to give the whole shadowbox a cohesive look?
Finally, museum quality glass that eliminates reflection and has UV protection was used to allow for a clear view of the artwork.
A side note: The matboard is signed. The process involved Gloria returning to the framing gallery to sign the matboard after the cranes were sewn in place.
Do you have something to frame that you believe may be difficult? We accept your challenge! With over 35 years experience in the framing business, there isn't much we can't put in a picture frame for you.
