The Thousand Oaks of Berkeley Hills
Yoshiko Yamamoto, The Thousand Oaks of Berkeley Hills.. Out of print. Not for Sale.
Close up framing detail Thousand Oaks of Berkeley HillsThis rare example of a "Crescent Corner" Asian frame is the handwork of the Master Framemaker, Baer Charlton. Mr. Charlton is an internationally recognized award winning frame maker who lectures and writes about the art.This frame is made from Western Hybrid Poplar. The corners are first turned on a lathe as a ring with a profile to match the straight sides. The ring is then cut in a "Tic-Tac-Toe" cut for the 1/4 rings to match the 45 degree cuts of the frame rails. The corners are glued then drilled and doweled for strength. The finish is a deep green under coat with a Japan Drop Black finish that is hand rubbed until the green starts to glow through the black. After the primer coat, over 20 coats of of hand rubbed enamel is slowly built-up and rubbed out, to acquire this special look.
