Sports Corner

Frame Works has teamed up with Sean Thompson and Iowa Hawk Art, to produce custom framed and matted show pieces.

Signed Tyler Sash Brett Greenwood Original Artwork

This original signed piece by Sean Thompson is framed in a 3" black beveled frame from the Larson Juhl Soho collection.  We have added a gold fillet just inside the frame for those great Hawkeye colors.  Using our Wizard mat cutting we cut the Hawkeye "I" into the black top mat which is floated or raised to create depth to the piece.
