Shadowbox Picture Frames

  • A "shadowbox" originally was an extra deep frame intended to display work on paper, but also hold it back in the frame from the damaging effects of everyday light.

  • With the advent of archival papers, "museum glass" and other conservation products, the shadowbox has evolved into a display case for a mix of things that weren't typically "framed" ever before, like guitars, wedding dresses, and chunks of concrete.

  • We see "shadowbox frames" as specialized pieces of furniture made specifically to present rare, unique, and highly valued objects, and we create them custom, one at a time, to meet the specific needs of your heirloom artifact.
