"Quality is not an act, it is a habit" - Aristotle
At WreckedAngle Framing we are committed to the principles of conservation and quality. Not only is a frame there to display an artwork in the most complimentary way possible, it is also there to conserve and protect. From ultra violet light and impurities in materials, to dust, dirt, moisture and insects there are myriad factors that can adversely affect a delicate work of art. All of the materials we use to mount art work are PH neutral. This means that there there is no acid present which would degrade and damage the work. The glass will never touch the work so as to prevent moisture build-up and the entire frame will act as preserving micro-climate.
Our frames are always made to a minimum of Fine Art Trade Guild conservation standard so you can be sure that your work will be preserved in its original state for many years to come and look beautiful at the same time. For particularly valuably or special items museum standard framing is also available with U.V. protective invisible glass and specialist materials that will actively diminish impurities in the atmosphere meaning your art will remain unchanged for generations to come.
We feel that 'good enough' is inadequate, so will never use inferior techniques or materials. Most of our frames start out as bare wood which allows them to be joined in a much stronger fashion. They are then hand finished with either stain and wax, or painted to give a perfect finish. This ensures an absolutely solid and flat join in the corners and no need for wax or filler to cover imperfections. This also means that there is no compromise to be made with the design or colour of your frame, as we can mix or create any colour to match your work and the environment it will be displayed in. We also have access to thousands of standard mouldings, for occasions they are needed.
We feel that if you want something framed, then it is valued by you, so we treat each job with exactly the same level of care, whether it be a Picasso, or your wedding photograph. Whatever we frame, we frame with care and pride.
