Textiles

  • Decorative cushion cover

    The customer requested this piece of textile (possibly once a purely decorative cushion cover) reduced in size and didn’t want a mount around it. This meant a fillet was used just under the edges to keep the beadwork from touching the glass. A narrow box was constructed at the back to hold the stretched tapestry […]
  • Antique Oriental Silk paintings

    A long journey for these Oriental silk paintings. Four silks depicting the seasons arrived in my studio in a very delicate state having already been shipped back from New Zealand.

The caps […]

The fillets were  painted to match the team colours and it was finished in a matt black frame. The shirt was stretched over a former and given shape to […]
  • Christmas Cross stitch stocking

    An unusual cross stitch in the form of a Christmas stocking was displayed on a grey suede mount board. The stocking was kept away from the glass for conservation by the use of a hand painted fillet. 2
  • Cross Stitch

    This snowy scene required stretching and was then framed with  double mount setting it off against a washed grey frame.  The non reflective glass made the most of the stretching techniques used.
