Jumpstart Your Day: This Artist Turns Dead Trees Into Picture Frames
These decor pieces give 'antique' a new spin
There are no rules when it comes to art. You are allowed create anything that you perceive to be beautiful. For Oregon-based artist Darryl Cox, that meant working with old tree branches and antiques to create something new and exciting.
Cox has always been fascinated with boughs and wanted to find a way to incorporate it in his work. He believes that different kinds of wood have different personalities—Pine, Juniper, and California Grapevine are a few of his favorites. He then picks out a matching frame to add character to the weald. With a little bit of sculpting and painting, Cox's Fusion Frames are born.
Each material exhibits very eclectic charactestics, some may even say it looks odd, but there is something about the clean lines of the frames and the ornate patterns in the branches that create a warm and enchanting look.
These Fusion Frames can be a great addition to any home as it can serve as a focal piece and definitely as a conversation starter. Lucky for us, it can be ordered through Cox's online store: FusionFramesNW on Etsy.
