The Benefits of ARTglass

These are called original prints as Guy creates each print in several stages involving the techniques of etching, aquatint, screen print and lithography, making each one in the edition differ slightly. Not only is it usual for the image to differ in tone and colour from print to print but the paper border may also display slight scuffs, dents and scratches naturally associated with these traditional hand made processes.

Each print is embellished with gold leaf, individually signed, embossed with an edition number and hand numbered by Guy and supplied with a certificate of authenticity

The framed print is float mounted then framed in a hand finished stained black moulding with a white painted spacer. The spacer is added to separate the print from the glass. Supplied strung and ready to hang.




Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.

To overcome these compromises we offer all our limited editions with the option of been fitted with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This image has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the print. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.


Hand finished frames give a unique character to a print 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.


All dimensions are Height x Width and are approximate.  The image size will be correct within a tolerance but the finished size is subject to change as the paper size used for each individually made print may be very different from that shown here.
