Jetta's memory shadowbox

These mementos of Rhonda's dog Jetta surround an original collage by her good friend Verna Jarrell, who managed to capture their special relationship. The central collage is surrounded by Jetta's fur, her paw print, leash and tags, and several photos mounted at different depths for visual interest.  The color and texture of the veneer frame evokes the unique coloring of Jetta's fur. A beautiful dark brown silk continues this theme onto the background and shadowbox sides, creating depth for the objects in the frame. The piece is finished with Artglass, which provides 92% UV protection and is virtually invisible.

Escher's Snakes

We hope you were able to see the M.C. Escher exhibit when it was at the N.C. Museum of Art - it was amazing! We decided to showcase one of his great prints with a totally unique four-layer mat cut on our Wizard mat cutter. We tweaked each layer to echo elements of his design and chose a frame that repeated the color and motif.
