annija art

Here is Annija picking out art customised for colour size and mood.

Art lets the sun shine from your walls from a beauitiful bespoke frame.

A good picture is as warm as a fire on a cold night; it's as bright as a heatwave at the beach; its as quiet as a good day in the bog. The day is the frame there.

HOW TO FRAME A MINIATURE WATERCOLOUR

minitiure watercolour

we used a thick lacquered white frame with a simple off-white mount which had a single line grooved or embossed around the watercolour. The artist was Ronnie Moore and we have framed many paintings by this acclaimed watercolourist over the years.

Every wall needs a bit of beauty. We don't really 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 the space we live in. Thats what we do one frame at a time. Do come and see us in our work. You are welcome.

How we make Holy Picture Frames 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 and a stone and a flower. The Om symbol or icon was cut into the mount and underlaid with an appropiate colour mount. The frame itself was deep and distressed in a laquer finish.

Nuala carefully arranged the elements and composed the overall design. The reason you see no reflection from the glass is because it is less than 1% reflective Clarity glass. This really is important to preserve maximum visibility and protect against UV radiation in natural sunlight which degrades open artwork over time. We thus framed to conservation standard for protection as well as designed for beauty.

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

Why Mountslips add a touch of class to your Art?

mountslip gold

we make picture frames all the time and its not every picture that is enhanced by the judicious use of a mountslip but when they are appropiate they do add to artwork or indeed photographs within a frame. In B&W photos they are especially effective over either a silk black or a bright white mount. Also we like to use the line known as a v=groove. This is always a nice visual counterpoint to the slip.  The Quality Framing Company have a comprehensive range of mounts and slips to suit all kinds of artwork and photos.

HOW TO FRAME A WINNING TEAM AS A PRESENTATION GIFT?

kerry hurling team u-15

We framed this for the winning Kerry U-15 Munster Hurling Shield team of 2016. It was a deliberate design- the team pic had a blue sky added, & the team pic was enhanced for contrast & colour. The caption was designed by ourselves with the crest, graphic design, and of course a few corrections re names and clubs. The mount incl a white-groove was compressed in composition bec we wanted to keep this presentation frame small, affordable and attractive to the young players. We of course proof each framing design until all are happy with the details. This custom frame has proven to be a winner and many other clubs have expressed interest in a similiar kind of presentation to their club members who have won important competitions. Give us a calll on 066 7181496, Matt Talbot Rd, Tralee in Kerry. We courier to many clubs so distance is not a problem......

Why are Farmers So Important to Ireland?

farmers creed

Just read and see in this 12"x8" sized print of this powerful poem which sings the praises of a life on the land. Framed in a black frame with a blue mount (mounts & frame can be changed to suit).Picture courtesy of Neil Tackaberry.

Words as follows-

The Farmer’s Creed

I believe a person’s greatest possession is their dignity and that no 
calling bestows this more abundantly than farming.

I believe hard work and honest sweat are the building blocks of a person’s
character. 

I believe that farming, despite its hardships and disappointments, is the
most honest and honorable way a person can spend their days on this earth. 

I believe farming provides education for life and that no other occupation
teaches so much about birth, growth and maturity in such a variety of ways.

I believe many of the best things in life are free:  the splendor of a
sunrise; the rapture of wide-open spaces; the exhilarating sight of your
land greening each spring. 

I believe true happiness comes from watching your crops ripen in the field
and your children grow tall in the sun.

I believe my life will be measured ultimately by what I have done for my
fellow man. 

I believe in farming because it makes all this possible.
