A few years ago I happened to see and meet Laura Wilder at a woodworking and artist’s show. I was quite taken in with her handmade printmaking prints and over time I purchased this print, Autumn Pond. I wanted to make an Arts and Crafts inspired picture frame to hang the print in. With some inspiration from the Green brother’s I designed this frame in Cherry with curves, carving and Ebony square plugs. Autumn Pond print by Laura Wilder

Design or Plan used: My own design
