"All of the woodworking we do here begins with raw material from the lumber mill. We carefully mill and refine these rough basswood pieces with our state of the art machinery, and sculpt them into lengths of stock material that we use to build all the different supports we make."
We sell supports both plain and pre-stretched. For a quick estimate message us below.
We carry canvas (#12 cotton duck) both raw and double primed. Up to 96” primed, and up to 120” raw
Linen: ARTFIX L21C (oil) 85”x 396”, ARTFIX L43U (universal) 85” x 396”, ARTFIX L64U (universal) 84” x 396” We can also order many more ARTFIX styles as needed like, P72U, P154U, L60, L22U, etc.
Our method of stretching is derived from a technique James Bernstein (Former Co-Director of Conservation for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) taught John Annesley who was my mentor from 2001 to 2013. The method focuses on creating even tension throughout the whole canvas. For more info click HERE
We stretch blank canvases the same way we stretch paintings. Paintings that we have mounted are hanging in museums from France to Los Angeles & San Francisco. A few notable artists Lance Pierson has stretched canvas for: David Hockney, Liam Everett, Wade Hoefer & more.
You can feel confident about the surfaces we prepare, and trust that it is done right.
