Rather than the image being set behind a mount window, the image rests on, or is raised above the mount surface (typically using foam board). This style works well for original works on paper, and handmade or deckle edged papers. A spacer prevents the image from touching the glass.
A single, double, or even triple mount is cut with a bevel edge to surround and flatten the artwork, keeping it away from the glass. Mounts come in different depths, finishes & colours. Many different styles of moulding, (frame), are available.
Especially suited to framing stretched canvases, the work sits with an L-shaped moulding which forms a tray to hold the work. Works on board and paper can also be tray framed.
Sometimes called 3D or box-framing. Virtually anything can be framed. The frame contains, presents, and protects the object(s). Can be simple or elaborate, depending on subject and budget!
Two or more apertures, (windows), cut into the mount surface. Ideal way to display numerous related images, ie. a set of postcards.
Why not get in touch or use the button below to arrange a time to visit the studio to discuss your requirements?
I am generally in the studio between 9.30 - 16.30, Monday to Friday, but it is best to call for an appointment to guarantee my being here for your arrival. Outside of hours, I am happy to meet by pre-arrangement.
Please note that the workshop contains machinery and sharp instruments, and is not a safe environment for small children.
