Jarva Gallery is known for its quality bespoke picture framing service. Using the finest conservation standard materials to ensure your treasured item is displayed as it truly deserves to be.
All our framing takes place in our workshop in Whaley Bridge.We have over 200 mouldings to choose from here in the gallery with expert help on hand to offer different styles, tastes and budget.
Using a triple frame we where able to use the outer frame with depth and this creates dimension to the finished piece. Detail on this frame is a silver which sits nicely with the white washed wood finish. I find silver lifts a pictures especially when lots of colours are in the artwork. It only needed a little so not to over power the at work.
Great idea for a special event.
We supplied the extra large mount for the day. Use either an A4 piece of paper with "Wedding day" comments to be written on or "Congratulations please sign." Or 80 today, 21 today ect. Its just great fun to keep.
The end of the day you have fantastic memories written to look at and remember. Choose your favourite photo to go in it and come and finish getting it framed.
Another Face Lift for a small beautiful picture.
This art work was very delicate with beautiful colours but was very over powered by a dark glossy frame. Yo can see the glass is extreamly reflective so difficult to view the piece.
Our approuch (below) was to give a fresher feel by using a triple mount with a small slither of a complimentory colour in the second mount. The frame chosen was a soft matt silver with a little bit of detail to give interest but not distract from the art work. We then used the special Claryl glass that has a reflective value of only 1% enabling the viewer to see clearly the artwork.
One of my favourite jobs is when a customer still loves the artwork but the presentation is old & tired. It needs a makeover!
This is one example were it didnt need much doing to it to freshen it up again. The original frame and mount is very dark and depressing, also the glass used is the diffused glass that dulls the colour and detail.
Solution ( image below) was to lighten the top mount and introducing an under mount of black giving a slight detail that ties in with the image. The colour of the artwork is instantly brought forward by using the lighter top mount and using Clarity glass that is 1% reflective so looks as though no glass is used. It keeps the colour and detail as well. We used a wider moulding with a slight detail edge. One very happy customer who has fallen in love with the artwork again.
Its amazing what a difference presentation can do!
A unique framing oportunity came in at Jarva Gallery recently. Framing a coat of arms for a lovely customer who Im very happy to say loved the work we had done for him. The item had to be boxed framed because of the depth of the wax containers. All work involved conservation tapes and mount boards. A lovely job to do for a lovely couple.
Just to show you the start of the coat of arms piece (above) as all framing jobs start of here in the gallery. Choosing the mounts and mouldings plus any details to enhance and compliment the item wether it be a family photo, childs drawing, greeting card, football shirt or a special piece like this one..
