BBC Radio Four talks about picture framing

When you think about it, picture framing is a bit of an unusual practice and certainly takes a bit of consideration. That certainly seems to be the general opinions of all the picture framers and artists interviewed recently for BBC Radio Four. The 30 minute programme covers many aspects of picture framing including unusual items that framers have framed and also some picture framers' ideas of what is good art. My favourite parts include the glazier who also makes picture frames stating that "if you can't tell which way round it hangs it is rubbish!" Perhaps a slight over generalisation but I understand where he is coming from. There is also at least one 'yuk' moment with some of the unusual items that have been framed. An interesting listen if you have half an hour to spend. To listen to the programme click here. Enjoy!
