Simon Keyte has been making frames since graduating from the Arts University in Bournemouth in 2007. At the age of 29 he set up a small gallery in Dorset with fellow AUB graduate, Jennifer Newbury. Two years later they moved to Frome and established Mount with the aim to make beautiful and stylish frames that properly protect artworks. Since then they have been sharing their passion for art and its presentation by supporting and assisting artists, collectors and galleries to achieve the best results.

We take great pride in our work: so much so that each of our makers are currently designing their own mark. Every maker who works on your frame will have their mark stamped onto the back. Some frames are a collaboration between many makers and so will have many marks.
Once the marks are designed and we’ve got the stamps ready we’ll update this page and you’ll be able to read the story behind the makers marks and discover who worked on your frame and what their mark means to them. (This is taking a while to get organised, but we will be doing this asap, honest!)
We’re temporarily reducing our opening times to:
Lydia Needle, curator of Fifty Bees exhibition, ACE Arts
Your framing is second to none – all the pieces that you prepped for the exhibition were by far the easiest to hang. Thanks for your help.
I am so happy with the work you have done on the etching. I am amazed with the effect of the glass you used. It looks like it’s not there!
I just wanted to thank you for all your help with our recent job. You were very professional, worked very quickly to a tight deadline and the quality of the print was outstanding. Thank you too for going out of your way to deliver personally so quickly. We will definitely use your services again.
Anita Taylor, Dean of Bath Spa School of Art & Design, and founding Director of Jerwood Drawing Prize
They are really beautiful frames, thank you! Hope the drawings do them justice!
