Welsh Art

We have had a flow of this kind of work over the past few months.  Oil on canvas in a 45mm wide black ash frame.  Size approx 600x450mm.  The popularity grows!Welsh art

How they looked

The two pedestals were put to use at the wedding and these two photos demonstrate that the work was well worth doing…..especially as they were donated and will be available for future use

Change of direction for us this week.  With a wedding coming up next Saturday 20th we were asked to make some feature pillars on which to place two vases of flowers.  Mainly we have made ’empty’ picture frames for both the top and bottom as you can see.

The actual pillar section is composed of four lengths of rainwater downpipe held together with clear silicone.  We are pleased with the result and hope the couple will be too.  With vases of flowers atop each one there may be the call for more photos.

Lycra Is Not Easy!

Framing a Lycra football jersey can be likened to working with a handful of elastic bands.

We get there in the end…..somehow!

POETRY for The Volcano Theartre

Nine pages of prose to hang in a Theatre Corridor celebrating the 25 years of

Volcano Theatre’s successful productions…  An interesting framing project because

cutting nine windows in the mountboard challenges us to get it right.  Just one wrong

and its all wrong!!

These last few weeks have kept us very busy.  Unusual items to frame along with the expected watercolours, photos, prints, stitch works etc.

These two objects in the photographs give some idea of the variety….Image

This photograph which hung in a restaurant suffered from damage,having stuck to the glass which had recently been broken.  Being of a moment in history in the life of the restaurant we were asked to try and get it back to the original state.

Above is the damaged photograph…note the lady’s face and left wrist.

All ready for framing…
