A NYC advertising company brought two guitars in that were filmed, in slow motion, as they were exploding. The creative director brought in the pieces and wanted them reassembled and framed.
Luckily, Nick plays guitar and has some experience in rebuilding them. Both instruments were partially assembled to emulate the feel of shards of wood in movement and then were mounted to a wooden backing board at different depths.
The guitars were used in a VH1 promotional ad featuring the rock band The Who!
Collectable Star Wars figurines were safely mounted on a wooden bar and placed in a shadow box frame. This unique design allows for the frame top, which is hinged to the bottom half of the box, to be opened; allowing access to the figures. Wooden dowels were attached to the existing mounting holes in the heels of the figures and then into drilled holes of the support bar in the frame. This allows for the figures to remain in its original condition and retain its value.
A bowl designed by Pablo Picasso was placed in frame for display. The inside of the frame is padded to limit damage in the event of impact. The metal brackets keeping the bowl in place were custom fitted and covered with rubber to protect the ceramic finish.
A child's dress was painstakingly sewn down to a museum quality board lined with silk. Sewing the fabric down allows for relatively easy removal and nominal alterations to the original fabric.
A three dimensional work on paper was mounted to fabric wrapped board and cradle. The plexi box differs from a shadow box in presentation in that it allows for the object to be viewed from the sides with nominal obstruction. The acrylic can be ordered in different grades, from regular plexi glass to UV protectant.
Arched canvas panels that were once mounted into a wall were removed from it's space and framed. A template was created to imitate the shape of the original art and frames were segmented together to follow the unique arch design of the art. The frame was then gilded with 24k gold leaf.
