In this age of instant, its refreshing to come upon someone that takes the right kind of time and dedication to a craft. Chris Chevalier at Glass & Grain Company in New Haven, CT is that someone. I personally feel artwork should be printed, and when it's printed, it should be displayed in a properly good frame.
The dedication and attention to detail Chris takes with his frames is second to none. The process begins with an order form and chat to decide the size of the frame, stain or paint, type of glass etc.... Once all the details are taken care of, the building process can begin.
After the wood is chosen, it is measured and cut/mitered, the edges are glued and stapled for a nearly seamless corner. The whole frame is then sanded with care to ensure smoothness for either paint or stain.
Paint or stain is then applied depending on the customer's wants (and Chris' recommendations depending on the look of the print) After that, Chris finishes the frame off with glass and the specially mounted back he came up with, the print is matted and the whole thing is put together and looks amazing.
