Art is irreplaceable. From the Rembrandts and Duchamps in museums to the works of contemporary artists being created, bought, and sold each day - art has a significant role in how we confront our world and process our experiences. Every work of art is unique to its owner - unlike nearly any other object in our lives, an artist's creation often cannot be replaced.
Yet Framing frequently damages art. Whether this damage is immediate, or takes place over time, every day another work of art may be irreparably harmed. Handmade Frames offers true conservation picture framing. We have mastered the skills needed to preserve art for generations, safeguarding the value of art and other treasured objects.
Let us help you make the best framing choices. We understand that conservation may not be your first priority, and that different budgets require different approaches. But conservation techniques and materials fall along a spectrum of cost. And there are also costs involved in not conserving. We can provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions, whether it involves one work of art or an entire installation. And we'd be happy to discuss less costly alternatives, when appropriate.
