I have been using the same framer for over 20 years . He is now retired and with a change of a framer there are some new frame styles. I All frames are wooden, hand-made and hand-painted with at least 3 coats of paint, then waxed to prevent fingermarks when handled. Sometimes I help to paint the frames. Frame width is 15 cm, depth 2 cm, white slip is about 2 cm wide, usually under glass. occasionally I use different frames-if I feel something different would suit the subject better-there had only been a few one-off variations and all those are shown here.
