Carvers' Guild frames waiting for a mirror

Our Story

I Am the Frame

by Sarah Canner

I surround,
hold a mirror to the world.

I define and separate,
protect and embellish.

I am gilded or painted,
lacquered or carved.

I swirl and sway and c-scroll.
I arch and cross and fret.

I complete
and am complete
but empty,
without you.
