albertaartinstallation A recent framing project for a young art Collector which we're very proud of; a beautiful print by David Hockney.
We hand-milled a ribbon of Black Walnut stock in our Laurier Heights Studio bleaching it soon-afterwards - softening its colour. Toning and finishing came later.
The purpose of the glass spacer is to offer a clear distance from Art to glass, never allowing the two to kiss. However, the problem with industry glass spacers is that they are void of sophistication - mainly offered in clear or black plastic lucite in only 2 dimensions.
After considerable consultation with our client, we moved forward with milling a small batch of glass spacers... which are now part of our exclusive line here at aai.
A small detail like this makes a big impact on a beautiful work of art and certainly deserved for our client's keen taste.

albertaartinstallation Seeing double?
Not a chance.
These original twin Works on Paper by Canadian Abstract Expressionist Douglas Haynes were both framed at our Bespoke #aai Conservation Framing Studio in Laurier Heights #yeg The frames were hand-milled from Black Walnut stock ( precisely calculated to utilize one board for both units ), then chemically bleached, dried, assessed and then warmly toned-up with a dark Samin Stain to rid any anemia from the species.
A luscious fine silk was laid on the ground - chosen in collaboration w. the client and gallerist.
Finely-milled walnut spacers are driven into the interior frames to secure the archival glass and allow it to float effortlessly above Mr. Haynes work allowing these monumental works to stretch and breath within their new confines.
A big success, technically and aesthetically with much care and detail from our #aaiteam and the team at #scottgallery.

allonipad In any disapline, whether you're a Designer, Artist, Musician, Maker of Furniture, experimentation and play is key to something new. It fosters growth and excitement in our craft, our skills and our lives - and, hopefully in others as well.
A small group show with ( @vignettesyeg ) big talent is a way for us to gauge how others are looking and how their development of ideas give context to what we're all revealing.
As Artists' we're always looking.
A Small Show is a great way to develop new big ideas without a large commitment.
These exercises reshape us all.
This exhibition is essential and important, for us, and for the design community, as well ( more importantly ) for our patrons and supporters.
Thank you for the opportunity and invitation @mojodesigninc . It's going to be a fun and fantastic show! 🏻
All the best to my fellow colleagues - let's have fun this week.

albertaartinstallation Nothing makes me happier than making a great work of Art look more handsome. This frame was commissioned by the Scott Gallery in Edmonton; a Bespoke Walnut Frame sun bleached for a week in the Alberta Sun on our Studio grounds until it reached the perfect tonality. Side-Note: Bleaching is only available in our Summer months.
