Ebony frame

140906-02a

Artist John Beasley of Medicine Bluff Studios, Cincinnati, Ohio made these ceramic tiles.  I made this fitted frame for them.

The frame is from ebony – probably from Solomon Islands.  I bought a couple of pieces of ebony at a wood show in Brisbane – wish that I’d bought more.  It was good quality – but mostly in smaller sizes – and not expensive.

Finish is a satin poly/tung blend, hand rubbed.
