Ted Orland

Recently the most stunning photograph came through the shop of a redwood tree covered in snow. When it was fit with the triple mat and frame, it was a testament that custom framing can already amazing art, even more impressive.

The framer who picked out the mat colors and frame, was sad to see it leave the shop. We kept looking at it in awe. I feel so lucky to be learning from her and my manager, since they both know so much about framing.

When the customer came by to pick up his order, I had to ask him the photographers name. The artist's name is Ted Orland, a California photographer.




It was the above photograph that was framed. This image is too small to see all of the amazing details, so go the artist's site to see better images of his work. I wish I had an image of it with the mats and frame, but you get the idea. It was a treat to go to work and behold the beauty of this art framed.
