This original painting by Paula Vize is framed in a hand finished frame and supplied with a certificate of authenticity.


Hand finished frames give a unique character to an original painting as an almost infinite combination of profiles, finishes and colours are possible.
Standard framing involves cutting and joining pre-finished mouldings to make the frame.
Hand finished framing requires a skilled craftsman who will first select a suitable frame profile which is cut and joined to make a bare wood frame.  The frame is then finished using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.  Depending on the finish chosen a frame may take many days to complete as component layers are built up to achieve the desired result. 
The result is a completely bespoke frame made to uniquely complement the original painting.  To this end, no two hand finished frames are ever exactly the same.
For 'Alert Spring Call' we have chosen a 2.1cm wide stained dark wood finish over which a wax is applied.  The frame style is called a 'tray' frame.  This is because the canvas sits inside the frame with a small gap between the edge of the canvas and the frame.  The front of the frame is level with the surface of the painting rather than the frame covering the front edge of the painting as is more typical.  This allows the frame to provide a border for the image without encroaching or dominating it.
