Memorabilia! It's such a loaded word and one that we appreciate greatly. In the Webster dictionary memorabilia is defined as "things that stir recollection or are valued" and/or "things that are remarkable and worthy of remembrance". In our line of work, it is our job to capture that meaning with frame design. We protect the memories attached to items that are valued by our clients. Here is The Ski Goggle Project.
These vintage Scott goggles are a very sentimental object for our client, bought by his mother when he was twelve. The goggles were rare back then, and 22 years later, even rarer now. The lenses reflect green holographic skulls, which brought a lot of attention from other children when our client wore them on the ski slope.
Retired from the slopes, these goggles are now ready to be encapsulated as memorabilia. We chose a Roma textured moulding with bark semblances to reflect that outdoor 'ski feel'. After crafting the frame, we stacked it on top of a deep black shadow box for height. The fabric mat, resembling ski wear material, ties everything together to make the goggles pop. We then floated art glass on top to make sure the reflection is diminished so you can really get a clear look at those cool holographic skulls.
