I have a ceramic plate done by Picasso that my client brought in to have me mount in a floater frame that he provided. The art is extremely valuable, so the methode I use needs to be safe for the art. At the same time, as always, this particular client doesn't want to spend a ton of money on this project so I can go into an expensive custom made hanging system like I normaly would do for something like this. My art depth is 2" - 2 18" (varies arond the plate). Any ideas or products you know of that might be helpful?

"What is this "expensive custom made hanging system?" I am officially curious about that."

I am just refering to either having my local acrylic fabricator making a mounting for the ceramic or fabricating mounts out of wood in my own shop. Very time consuming and costly process. And this client doesn't usualy like to pay for time consuming costly options. The last Picasso ceramic we did for this client I had to have Stinky Metalworks (welded frame maker in Oregon, I highly reccomend them) fabricate steel mounts. I had to charge him $325 for the fabrication work alone. That piece weighd much more than this one does though. So I am trying to figure out a less costly methode.
