[note this is an old post: we no longer offer individual framing in Frome. We’re now based at Shatwell Farm, near Castle Cary and currently work with galleries and exhibiting artists requiring more than 5 of the same style frames.]
We’re a Frome picture framing company serving a wide geographic area, including Somerset (Frome, Bruton, Castle Cary, Wincanton, Somerton, Shepton Mallet), Wiltshire (Westbury, Warminster, Trowbridge, Salisbury), Dorset (Gillingham, Sherborne, Shaftesbury, Bridport) and Bath and Bristol. We’ve also worked with artists and collectors based in London, Devon and Hampshire.
Through exploration and experimentation we strive to provide excellent design and protection at a fair price. Amazing artworks can be made or ruined by a frame – our skills and processes ensure that every image has the best possible frame.
Here are some of the framing projects we’ve worked on so far:
One of our most challenging projects to date has been a series of huge frames for Anita Taylor’s charcoal drawings. Each one is 2.5m x 1.8m. Here’s a photo of Simon and one of the frames just after he finished making them.
Here’s a lovely old travel poster that antique dealer Jack Brister aka Tradchap brought in to us to frame a while back.
We’ve framed quite a few of Gary Cook‘s amazing Infocanvases, exhibited as part of Dorset Arts Week and Gary’s solo shows. Gary’s work is in many private collections.
Here’s a few projects we’ve worked on for Hauser & Wirth in Bruton:
Three frames and three books designed for Christopher Bucklow’s solo show at Southampton City Art Gallery
We’ve framed a few of Mark Karasick’s works, and generally try and help him in whatever way he needs, including installing this huge work in a restaurant.
We made this fab lightbox for a primary school (the windmill is their icon). This stained glass panel was made by a parent of a student at the school.
We’re a fan of Edward Chell’s Soft Estate and enjoyed framing two of his large works for Karina Joseph (Field Gallery)
Hannah Carding, artist and illustrator based in Frome.
Ceramic pebble artist, Claire Mahoney.
Photographer James Ravillious.
This amazing stained glass by Silk Mill artist, Jenny Raggett looks great framed and with a lightsheet illuminating it.

We printed and framed a series of 6 beautiful photographs by Simon Richardson. Framed with black walnut under AR glass. Printed on 300gsm cotton paper.
Lovely painting by Selena Ogilvy, currently showing at Bruton Art Factory
This black and gold ink screenprint was framed under AR glass and looks super!
This batman poster was great to frame. The grey moulding really suited the image. Anti-reflective (AR) glass really set this off so well.
2015 was THE year for Back to the Future fans, so we enjoyed framing this awesome poster using AR glass. Very fly!
We framed this amazing graphite drawing of a raven by Paul Newman using anti-reflective glass to fully show off the play of light on the bird’s feathers; something that risked being lost under reflective glass.
The O3 Gallery in Oxford showed some our Jennifer’s work, which was of course framed here at Mount.
Mount donated 24 frames to Frome’s mayoral chain exhibition. This is an exhibition of David Partner‘s photo series of Frome town mayor wearing bespoke mayoral chains. Simon float-mounted the photos in a contemporary frame. Exhibited at the Silk Mill gallery April 17-21st. https://www.facebook.com/events/437129816454117/
