We offer bespoke rectangular frames in white or black with the choice of two different mounting styles, classic mount or float mount, and bespoke circular frames in white or black with a classic mount.

To ensure your Limited Edition Print is well protected we use ph neutral i.e acid free tapes, board and back mount. The artwork is entirely stuck down and mounted to the frame. By using this technique of entirely sticky down the artwork it means that the artwork is less likely to react to different level of humidity and therefore achieving a completely straight print in the frame. Our Frames are bespoke clean white frames with two options of mount - Classic mount or Float mount which are explained below.

Hanging your artwork

All frames that are under A1 in size (59.4cm x 84.1cm) will come with d rings and a chord for hanging. Artwork over this size is too wide to be securely hung on a string, so these pieces will come with strap hangers attached to each side of the frame. This enables you to fix your frame onto screws, pre-drilled into the wall, ensuring your large artwork hangs correctly and securely. Full instructions will be included with your artwork.

Rectangular frames

Our frames are made to size, clean, white or black frames. They are made of wood with a smooth matt top coat. We offer two options of mounting the artwork in the frame. 

Classic mount

The classic window mount is cut so that it just covers the edges of the print and is placed on top of the print in the frame. This mounting style is one of the most common, and gives the artwork a classic, clean look.

Float mount

This is Kristjana’s favourite method of mounting her artwork. Instead of being flat in the frame, a float mount means that the print is lifted off the mount, casting a shadow which gives depth to the framed artwork.

Circular frames

A circular frame is an interesting and unusual way of framing and is becoming increasingly popular with our clients. In an intricate and somewhat time consuming process, our framer and handcarver work side by side to expertly craft these stunning frames to a perfect finish, finishing off with a smooth coat of matt white paint. This is a dramatic and eye-catching way to display your artwork – do take a look at some of the examples in our photo gallery. All prints framed in a circular frame are classic mounted.

Teardrop Frames

The Studio commissioned these bespoke, handmade teardrop frames specifically for Kristjana's 2020 print release Eg Se Tig - Rainbow Eyed.  These original and beautiful duo prints required a specific shape, and we are delighted to be able to offer this stunning and unique framing option.

Glass types

For most of our frames we use normal glass, but we also offer UV-protective anti-reflective glass for an additional fee. If you would like to use anti-reflective glass for the framing of your piece, please email info@kristjanaswilliams.com and we will get back to you with a price for the artwork you have in mind.

Conservation Mounting

Conservation mounting standard which means that all the “supports” such as tape, board, back mount etc. are ph neutral, i.e. acid free, to ensure your print is well protected. Another criteria of conservation framing is that the process is reversible. That means that the artwork can be taken out of the frame and absolutely no damage is done. This means that it can be framed in another way in the future or rolled up in a tube again. 

Conservation framing involves the fewest number of small attachments between the artwork and its support panel. This always results in a very slight undulation across the surface of the print, caused by the print expanding and contracting in different levels of humidity. This indicates that the artwork has been mounted properly and is not a defect in the artwork or the framing.

Please note if you would like this method of framing please email info@kristjanaswilliams.com

Shipping outside London - perspex glass

If we are shipping framed pieces outside London, we always use perspex glass. This looks exactly like normal glass, but is lighter and does not break easily, and for this reason perspex glass is used by many artists for larger pieces of artwork.

All framed work being transported within London will be framed with normal glass.
