Vintage proof prints dating back to 1996 being framed in the studio using Shou Sugi Ban & Shellac finish

 
 

I recently wrote about a new low carbon footprint framing process that is now operational in the studio, and how the wood is hand felled and air dried. Here you will see the same framing process but this time finishing the prints in a cracked Shellac varnish furthering their execution on the wall leaving the impression that these are in fact paintings. You can find one or two of these pieces currently listed at the online store with more to follow once my next batch of air dried wood becomes ready for use.
