Petersfield Framing Studios
Unit 4A
Buriton Business Park
Petersfield, Hants

This multiple aperture project is a collection of souvenirs from a cricket game where the customer me the former England cricketer Alex Stewart. The photograph has been made into a jigsaw puzzle but the puzzle consists of specially shaped pieces from thr game of cricket. There is also the ticket the hand sign waved by the crowd when a batsman scores a six. This was signed by Alex Stewart.

 

 

The jigsaw neede to be dry mounted onto thicker card so that the pieces would not move in the frame. Also there was a size restriction for the finished outside size of the picture as the space on the wall where it would eventually hang was very restricted. Therefore particular attention had to be paid to the arithmetic at the measuring stage. The term "measure it twice and cut it once" comes in very useful! Something very important to note here is that the hand sign needed to be cut down in order to fit into the limited frame size required. This is always done with the customer's agreement prior to cutting anything down and is an extremley important feature to point out to the customer.  

 

 

Once the measurements were checked the frame and mount can be cut to size. Perhaps the most difficult part of this type of framing project is to make the finished frame look correct. THis is acheived with a lot of input from the customer at the beginning of the project to make sure they are going to like the finished effect. Also knowing what will look effective and visually satisfying through experience is similarly important.

 

 

 The finished frame provides a compact showcase of a very precious day out to remember.
