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…

Unusual and interesting…

These two elderly oil paintings came to us in severely damaged framed.  Once we had removed them and after some cleaning they went into this attractive hand-finished pine surround.  The cost of the framing was just £22 each.  The pleased reaction of the owners was priceless!

We see some very badly damaged works.  Often people give up any hope of restoration. These two photos may give an idea of what can be done when things look really hopeless.

Badly ripped whilst stored in an attic.

Finally, put right as far as practical and into an old suitable frame provided by the customer.
