Pets are a huge part of many families today. We are always honored to help clients create a memento of a beloved animal companion. This client had created impressions of his dog's four paws in a hardened plaster and wanted to protect and display them. After some discussion, we found a wood frame that suggested the color of his pet's coat, and a rough linen mat to complement the smooth plaster. The prints were carefully mounted and recessed into the frame for protection. The finished piece is a beautiful way to remember a special friend.
A client brought mementos of a special visit with the Pope in Rome. A shadowbox frame solution was proposed to accommodate the beanie without crushing it. We decided to inset the smaller items into a window in the mat to give them emphasis and visual organization. Attention was paid to both appropriate aesthetics and overall size. The final result is a gem that protects and presents the memory of this event for the client and his family.
