A love for design…

Natural Edge Framing and Photography is based in the regional town of Cowaramup Western Australia.  It is an area famous for its celebrated timbers and natural beautiful.  As a result, it is the perfect place to gain endless inspiration.  What began from an interest in timber framing has grown into a passion for rustic design.  We use discarded timber odd cuts which continues a frame design much loved over time.  Above all though, our frame designs embody our aim of sustainable recycling. Our wish is to reuse and add value – it is our number one priority.

Our main source of timbers come from local mills. We buy the log face and off cuts that is normally disposed to land fill.   However, we also search high and low for other materials, including old cattle yards, beach driftwood and discarded timbers from demolitions etc.  Accessing ‘waste’ such as this and reusing it to create pieces of beauty fulfils the vision we have for our business.

We work to design and create pieces that encompass our shared interests in framing and photography to showcase Western Australia’s speciality timbers.  There are wonderful rewards that come with sanding back a length of weathered or rough sawn timber to reveal its beautiful grain. Grain and texture that is still sound underneath. Combining the evolving frame with a photograph or artwork that is complimentary completes the process. We truely love what we do…
