Michael Craig Martin - Gilded Frame Design
John Jones have a unique gilding and special finishing department at our frame design studios in north London, using traditional techniques that date back to the early Egyptians and Ancient Greeks. Our trained artisans and gilding specialists spend weeks creating beautiful gilded frame designs with wafer thin layers of gold leaf. These frames can then be burnished to the desired effect of the client. This gilded frame was created to protect and present a work by contemporary artist Michael Craig Martin. Michael has been hugely influential in revolutionising the British art scene, creating fantastic work whilst also tutoring some of the best young British artists at Goldsmiths College, London. Purchased from The Drawing Room, this image of handcuffs contains subtle gold and red colourings which are heightened and dramatised further by the opulent frame design. Finished with protective Ultra violet filtered glazing, the frame will also conserve the quality of the image and protect the investment within.
