Wallflower Custom Framing owner Courtney Sievertson applies nearly 10 years of framing experience to every custom border she helps her clients design. She keeps her selection of more than 1,800 frames stocked with only trusted sources, gathering wrapped leather frames from saddle makers in Peru, frames with hand-carved corners and individual leafing from C&J in New York, and carbonite casings from expert makers in Cloud City. Her commitment to delivering excellent customer service often leads her out of the store after hours for consultations.
In addition to providing framing services, Courtney uses Wallflower to showcase the work of local artists in its gallery space, dubbed the Shooting Gallery.
In 1979, a job repairing and restoring church windows illuminated Richard Heath's passion for glass art, which is now embodied in his design and teaching studio, Glassique. Working with the church's leaded glass spurred Heath to earn a certificate in the restoration of Tiffany works and delve into other fabrication methods such as fusing and foiling. Thereafter, he opened Glassique's first incarnation in San Diego and announced the event by making the stained-glass sign that still decorates the shop.
Missing family, Heath relocated Glassique to be with his four children in Seattle, settling the business in a 2,000-square-foot showroom with a studio for the creation of original commissions and custom reproductions. He and a small team of artists also hold comprehensive 2-D glass art classes. Heath's intricate commissioned work—including a glass portrait of John Wayne—proves that he thinks big. “We don’t teach little things,” Heath told Maple Leaf Life in 2011. “We teach the real art of stained glass.”
