A METICULOUSLY HAND-CRAFTED FRAME
Yoshida is an ideal setting for the artistry of the print-maker. The Yoshida
features pinned through mortise-and-tenon joints accented with delicate
pillow-shaped inlaid square plugs in either ebony or the same wood as the
frame. An ebonized (black) slip may be added an especially effective
enhancement on prints with strong outlining.
On the standard Yoshida the short sides are 1" wide, while
the long sides are 3/4" wide, accentuating the format of the print (particularly
appealing on pieces with elongated proportions). Other widths are available.
Walnut with ebony plug and ebonized slip.
Machiche with ebony plugs and ebonized slip.
The Yoshida is available in the same woods offered for our other frames — quartersawn
white oak (in either a clear finish or your choice from a range of stains),
cherry, Honduran mahogany, walnut, and maple (including birdseye and quilted
maple), plus the following alternates:
A saturated black finish with subtle hints of wood tones. Call us about
ebonizing other woods.
From Belize, this has a muted red-brown hue somewhere between walnut and
mahogany, often lightly streaked with slightly more golden tones.
