Each custom made, museum quality Japanese wood frame has been further enhanced with an undercoating of purple clay, with an overlay of hand-gilded, silver leaf, which covers the entire front of the frame, including the inset double-beveled edge. Original, watercolor paintings “float” within each frame, in classic spatial proportions, and are mounted on archival mats, with organic wheat paste, and covered with UV protected glass.
