Being in the framing industry at Four Seasons Ramesh Gallery for many years we have come across different ways and techniques of framing an artwork; be it the most complicated ones, modern or traditional. We take each piece as it’s our own and give extra attention to detail, which in return, when done, shows in itself of the quality of the work we do. We have art collectors, designers, and homeowners who believe in high-end quality and workmanship and have been our regular customers for years.
As specialized framers in this region we offer something, which no others in our trade are able to offer. Being the only museum quality framers in the gulf, we provide an option in conserving valued artworks by using the highest-grade conservation glazing, acid free tapes and matt boards. Glazing plays a major role in art conservation by blocking UV rays and protecting both colors and medium from degenerating for generations.
In this blog we will talk about a simple difference a glazing can make. The glazing you see here is a sample of a plain glass and Ultra Vue®. Ultra Vue® glass offers superior anti-reflective properties, on a water white substrate. This high-quality, anti-reflective glass product provides 70% UV protection and is optically coated to create a nearly invisible finish. Our partners Tru Vue® use their proprietary coating process using Magnetron Sputtering technology, which deposits precisely controlled layers of highly energized metal oxides onto a 2mm water white substrate, to produce this glazing. Well seeing is believing, we clearly can see the difference between the two glazing though the glazing that are featured here are both not conservation grade but the Tru Vue® clarity is beyond comparison and is non reflective. On the other hand plain glass has reflection and a tinge of green which does not portray the picture the way it should. We will talk about different grades of conservation grade glazing on a different blogs to come.
