We think custom framers are some of the most creative, talented, and special people around. Because of that, we'd like to celebrate custom framers throughout the year, including our Design Star: Framing Edition winners. Have a special story? Please tell us about it at news@larsonjuhl.com.

2016 Co-Design Stars: Micah Paul Bolton and Katrina Magowan

Congratulations to Micah Paul Bolton and Katrina Magowan of The Studio Shop, our 2016 Design Star: Framing Edition winners. The two talented frame designers were recognized at our celebration and awards event during West Coast Art & Frame in Las Vegas, January 25, 2016.

The winning piece from Micah and Katrina was entered into the Art on Paper category.

 

The design utilized Confetti II 140648, Harlow 281320 and Tate 536650.

Micah collaborated with fellow framer Katrina on the winning design.

Katrina painted the outside edge of our Confetti frame to mimic the pattern from the poster. The mirror finish on the Harlow moulding in Micah’s stacking combo beautifully reflected the painted edge. The entire piece took over 40 hours to complete!

“The design by Micah and Katrina really blew us away. We’re excited to get their cutting edge perspectives on our next design project.”

Doug Rozenboom, Vice President, Global Merchandising and Design.

Wonderful Experience
