After a long process of developing and perfecting the design, it's a joy to finally share our newest oval shadow boxes. Our largest shadow boxes yet, these were inspired by a pair of antique 'bubble glass' frames in Erika's personal collection. Each of these fresh and colorful interpretations is unique, with bepoke domed glass enclosing a collection of Italian plaster intaglios in two colors.

 

Our graceful oval frames are exactingly crafted in our Michigan studio one at a time using architectural modeler's wood and exquisite hand-marbled papers. The frame opening is finished with a jeweler’s brass bezel and the reverse, with it's beautiful contrasting paper pattern, includes ingenious inset hanging hardware to allow the piece to hang perfectly flush on your wall or bookcase.

 

We like to outfit these pieces with intaglios in two colors. Please select one color for the primary intaglio, and a secondary color for the smaller ones. Our hand-cast intaglios are crafted expressly for us in Italy, and are available in four historical colors: white, black, red or pink. As always, we take great care to wrap each of our intaglios in gilt paper bezels to match the shadow box exterior.
