Heavy and attractive

Two very ornate tiles.   Truly decorative and with about 50mm protusion they would normally be a feature when used in a tiling application.  Too good for that said the owners.  We want them framed.  So here they are…..Tiles

Something Different

Model guitars brought in for framing.  Since they went on show we have been asked a few times where they can be purchased.  Guitars

Pleasant Distraction

A few days ago we had a little morning visitor.  Came in from the street, looked around, explored all the workshop, sat in the window and after an hour said goodbye.  Not one bit shy or frightened.  I noticed that the left eye was not there so could not offer a job in quality control!I could settle here Quality Control

Poet in Glass

Dylan Thomas, poet and writer from Swansea.  This work here seen in a photograph does not really do justice to its intricate nature.  It is made entirely of glass.

Made by glass artist Alan Roberts it represents hours of work and attention to detail.  The frame we have used was chosen so that there is no distraction from the item.

Winter Window

During the (sunny) summer days we can only have a full display in the late afternoon. Now there is no restriction since the sun barely reaches over the rooftops oposite.

More from the pitch…

We have had a batch of football and rugby jerseys to frame over the past few weeks. One thing we have know in advance is that since they are probably batch produced they are hardly tailor-made in proportions.  Plus, if they have been worn in a game the tugging and pulling they received renders them considerably out of shape. We have a method of framing and fixing them down.  Generally, the overall size of the finished work is around 900mm x 750mm and the cost complete is £69.00 on average.

Everyone Loves Bambi!

Bambi turns up for framing regularly; sometimes a stitchwork, a print, a watercolour.  This time a print on canvas.  An unobstrusive ash frame so as not to detact from all that’s going on in the scene.  Antique white mount and glass to completeBambi

Not An Easy One!

This framing work was large….top to bottom 1450mm and some 720mm wide.  The difficulty in framing was that the item was hand-made paper (from Laos) about 3mm thick!

It had no willingness to go flat;  it was heavy,  it was a long way out of being a rectangle.

The frame we used is Oak with a deep rebate and that accomodated the undulating nature of the work.  In the photograph, the white ‘tracers’ are reflections from light in the facing window, not a blemish in the work.
