Copperplate Etching | Pauline Bewick

A one-off copperplate etching from Ireland's most iconic artist, Pauline Bewick.

The print size is 17'x15" approx and the outside picture frame size is 28"x31" approx.

The following info on the Etching art process is by the artist-

Etching was introduced in the early 1500’s and as a method of printmaking, it is, along with engraving, the most important technique for old master prints, and remains in use today.

Etching is a process which uses acid to make marks in a metal plate. Once the plate has been etched by the artist the whole plate is inked up and then wiped to remove the surface ink from the plate, leaving ink in the incised areas only. The paper is dampened so that, under pressure, it will be squeezed into the inked recesses of the plate.

This limited edition of copper plate etchings are signed, numbered and can be commissioned to be hand tinted by the artist, Pauline Bewick, in her Kerry Studio.

See some more of the artist's work on her official website.

A Beautiful Deep Rebate Oak Picture Frame in Hilton Hotel

Oal Picture Frame Hilton Hotel by the Quality Framing Company

I saw this lovely deep rebate natural oak picture frame when I stayed overnight in the Hilton Hotel in Birmingham airport recently.

The hotel was actually called the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel and it had a simple elegant Swedish natural style to the decor. It looked impressive. I 'll add more pics later.

Our Norwegian Collection has many shades of wood- maple, walnut, ash, etc - and many mimimalist profiles and size widths. Do call in and we can provide samples.

These natural veneer bespoke picture frames are very much the choice of our contemporary themed  homes owners clients and commercial businesses.

They look so fresh and natural and are made to last.

HOW TO FRAME A MINIATURE WATERCOLOUR

minitiure watercolour

The artist was Ronnie Moore.

We have framed many paintings by this much collected watercolourist over the years.

Here we used a thick lacquered white frame with a textured off-white mount which had a single line grooved or embossed around the window.

Every wall needs a bit of beauty.

We don't just frame pictures but in a very real sense, we design pieces of house jewelry for your home.

Jewels are by their nature beautiful to behold.

They add character, class and personality to what they adorn.

That's what we try to do one piece at a time in the space you live in.

How we make Important Art to Last & look Beautiful !

bodhi frame

We framed this for a customer awhile ago and she was delighted.

The elements within the frame incl a beautiful painting of a bodhi tree and prayer beads, a stone and a flower.

The Om symbol or icon was cut into the mount and underlaid with an appropiate orange mount.

The frame itself was deep and distressed beige in a laquer finish.

We arranged the various elements in the overall design to create a pleasing effect.

The glass used has less than 1% reflection glass for maximum visibility.

It also has properties to protect against UV radiation in natural sunlight which degrades open artwork over time.

We therefore framed these valued items to conservation standard for protection (Fine Art Trade Guild Std.) as well as carefully designed for aesthetic effect.

We hope you like it and we are happy to help you preserve your treasures too. You will be welcome.

How Mountslips add a touch of class to your Art?

mountslip gold

Making bespoke frames we choose from a wide palette of materials and techniques.

One of the most effective is the mountslip which we use around artwork or indeed photographs and memorabilia within a frame.

In B&W photos they are especially effective over either a silk black or a bright white mount.

In addition we like to use the embossed line known as a v-groove (as seen in photo).

The Quality Framing Company have a comprehensive range of mounts and slips to suit all kinds of artwork and photos.

We are happy to advise you.
