One of our more uniform finishes, this steel "H" has a very rich and smooth, almost chocolatey look! A departure from the darker finishes more common in steel frames.
Product shown: 2" X 2" H, all ground and brown.

Floaters are one of the most elegant ways to showcase a canvas piece.
We offer floaters in multiple configurations, finishes and materials.

This deep style back allows a space to be left between the piece and the side of the frame, showcasing the patinaed finish below.

A rare glimpse behind the scenes at our shop.... Or rather the ceiling of our shop through the reflection seen in the face of this beautiful polished brass frame.
Polished brass brings a warmer look than some of our other polished materials due to the bright golden hue of the metal.

Our cold blueing process brings out one of the most deep and layered finishes steel has to offer.
This fusion of chemistry and artistry produces an always unique combination of dark blues, golds, grays and greens by changing the composition of the metal's surface. #science

While picture frames are our main focus here at SMW, custom sculpture mounts and bases are in our wheelhouse as well!

Here we see 1/4" brass sheet being sheared down to start their journey towards patinaed sculpture bases.

Mounts are available in most materials and finishes that are available for our picture frames.

Bent steel flat bar in production today, after more fabrication and finishing this piece will be transformed into a mirror surround.
This project started off as a length of straight 1/4" thick steel flat-bar, and was rolled "the hard way" to form this circular face. #custom, it's what we do.
