We have been making a variety of Art Stands, Pedestals, Cubes and Boxes for designers for years, and have finally decided to make this a stock and custom offering through our channel. If you or your client have fine statuary and want a special art stand, this may be a unique solution for you. These pieces have our traditional Cerused, crackled and simulated hide finishes in flat, satin and gloss. We know black gloss cerused with silver, and white cerused with gold will be top choices that won’t overpower most artwork. But we expect designers will pick a color from the artwork to ceruse or crackle with our finishes, as well, and can’t wait to see the results. We are offering several sizes of upright, cube and oblong display pieces, in either hardwood plywood or solid wood. Both options will be rated for seating or 250 lb artwork, with higher weight limits available by special order. The plywood option will still have a structural frame inside, but be lighter and easier to move around than the solid wood. We are using a premium oak ply for cerusing, and maple and birch for crackle and hide finishes. Solid wood will primarily be Ash, Oak and maple. Look for the stock items to be on the website and price list in March, and we are now accepting orders for custom sizes and finishes.
