“A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” —John Keats
A picture can only be well framed if it’s in a well-made frame—an enduring frame in which your picture can enjoy a lasting and meaningful place in your home and your life. Restoring sound and careful craftsmanship to the art of the picture frame is the basis of what we do at Holton Studio. It’s a mission we fulfill with our complete framing service, including expert handling of your pictures and sensitive and intelligent custom framing design.
These are “closed-corner” frames and are made to order and from scratch. At our showroom we display hundreds of designs and constantly develop new ones; but most importantly, we’ve cultivated an adaptability of design and skill with which we’re able to provide a setting in perfect sympathy with, and unique as, each picture. Frame styles range from delicate “drawing” frames to massive architectural designs, from plain and simple to detailed and more decorative. Techniques include fine joinery, sensitively shaped and proportioned profiling, hand-carved and painted details, and gilding (directly on oak — a favorite period treatment).
We hope you have the opportunity to visit us in person with your artwork, but we also provide custom framing online. In fact, with more than two decades of serving a national (and international) market, we’re experts at it!
While custom frames and framing are the heart of our work, we also have an inventory of ready-made, ready-to-ship frames available through our convenient online store, shop.holtonframes.com.
