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.

Our core aims:

1) To create well-designed and sustainable products, made to last.
2) To be easy to use and transparent.
3) To provide excellent customer experiences.

We’re currently changing the way we do business.

We want to retain our design-led values, but we’re increasingly concerned about sustainability. Aside from various environmental measures we’re addressing, we’re also looking to move to a new business model that doesn’t rely on just one person, and that can allow us to grow smoothly. These plans take time to draw up so for the time being we’re closing our workshop except by appointment and we’re not accepting new framing jobs for a while.

Makers Marks

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!)
