We create eyewear inspired art and tables


Husband and wife duo, Frances and Douglas Scholz, take their combined love of skill for wood sculpting and eyewear to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind art pieces.Our tables and wall art are made to order in our backyard in Anchorage, Alaska.

Frances, an optician and artist, designs the pieces while working in tandem with Douglas to render the works in a variety of hardwoods. From dispensing tables to mirrors, business card holders to wall art: backyard Spectacles can create a larger than life frame that suits your practice or shop. All you need to do is pick a frame shape , size ,color and then let us create something awesome for you.

I ordered a card holder from Backyard Spectacles and told Frances my favorite colors.   The most beautiful product showed up.  I am totally in love with it.  It is on my dispensing table and I receive a ton of compliments on it every day.  .  I recommend her products whole heartedly.

My wife and I found Frances Scholz online and were so pleased when we did. Her custom optometry artwork speaks for itself and looks even more amazing in person. Frances was very accommodating, provided suggestions and was so easy to work with via email.
We would highly recommend her artwork for your home or office. The Retro Tortoise Frames we had customized is a focal point to our new office and we are so pleased with it!
