Smoked Stripes Capiz Frame


Frame your photo in a simple arrangement of stacked rectangles. Filipino artisans handcraft this frame from translucent capiz mollusk shell retrieved from the ocean floor by hand. Makers wash and soak the shells then cut them into shapes. Smoking gives them the burnished tone found in the dividing strips. A finishing coat of varnish completes this labour-intensive process. Before glass became available in the Philippines, capiz was used for windows in houses. For 4x6 photo.
