Analytical models for random sources producing far fields with frame-like intensity profiles are introduced. The frames can have polar and Cartesian symmetry and adjustable sharpness of the inner and outer edges. The frames are shape invariant throughout the far zone but expand due to diffraction with growing distance from the source. The generalization to multiple nested frames is also discussed. The applications of the frames are envisioned in material surface processing and particle trapping.
