Oval Gilded Frame - Private Collection
The John Jones bespoke wood mill allows our craftspeople to create virtually any frame shape in any size and profile. This stunning embroidery by Anja von Kalinowski has been presented within a dramatic gilded frame cut to an elliptical shape to echo the shape of the canvas. Before gilding, the wood is covered with specialist red clay. This creates a warm, bright colour once the frame has been finished with the traditional water gilding process. In this case, the gold leaf has been burnished to a high mirror shine to complement the striking gold sequins present within the embroidery. The entire artwork is protected with our finest quality glazing material, containing an ultra violet light filter and a low glare coating for the optimum viewing experience.
