Squiggle frames are hand forged mild steel frames finished with oil and wax.
They are a great base for making all sorts of things decorative.
Originally designed as a base for Christmas wreaths I soon discovered that the shape was so pleasing it could be used all round the year as a base for different crafts.
Seaside/Coastal Wreaths being very popular.
Size: 30 x 40 cm high including the squiggle (12x15.5”)
I have been sent pictures by customers of what they have done, these are available on Facebook under 'Squiggle Frames by the Friends of Little Duck Forge'
The oil and wax finish is suitable for indoor use but will rust outdoors. For the seaside sculpture rust is appropriate but if you want to slow down the rusting process then it is advisable to regularly oil the frame with a garden furniture oil like boiled linseed oil. If you wish to paint the frame then please advise me when purchasing and I will send one without wax on it.
When I first set up the forge and we were making Christmas decorations my apprentice asked if we would be making Christmas wreaths....he had forged flowers in mind so I said no, they would be too heavy and cost a fortune!
That night I went home and berated myself for being negative and started thinking about what would be affordable and not be a liability on the doors of Portsmouth. The next morning I made a squiggle frame, that day I decorated it with green and red felt, then baubles and ribbon, then stones......and so started the life of the Squiggle Frame. I now sell them to ceramicists and weavers to make wall sculptures as well as the public who have used them to make amazing pieces of art. One customer never made hers up, after 3 years she came to me and said she had decided 'less is more'....she loves the frame just as it is on the wall with no decoration. What will you do with yours?
