Upon request pieces
may be mounted this way by the artist...
this simple and elegant mounting suits the work well and is called Shibui Mounting.
In the realm of Japanese
aesthetics, shibui refers to an attribute of sublime subtlety or
an understated elegance. I call the special mounting technique that I use
on many of my works Shibui Mounting for it is a mounting that
clearly presents the design and strength of the artpiece itself. In
practical terms, a mounted piece has appropriate brackets on the back so
it is "ready to hang." However, if the patron wishes, a piece
mounted in this way, may later be framed.
Most of the pieces in the Art for Sale section of this website are presented with Shibui Mounting, and commissioned pieces may be completed as such upon request.
