art of gold leafing and wood carving picture frames is an ancient
art that remains popular today.
in this art is the process of taking a piece of wood and molding it
to a decorative design - tissue thin sheets of real or imitation gold
or silver is then applied to the surface. At Castelli we have mastered
the art to capture this unique and timeless style of framing, mirroring
the traditional as well as creating contemporary styles for todays
more modern pieces.
Our guilders and leafers, who we refer to as "The Specialist"
have been practicing this trade for over 20 years and have developed
amazing techniques that only skill and experience can give.
