I am very sad to announce that the man who makes our Firth watercolour painting frames, Graham Lowe, has died today. Graham was 83 and had been ill for some time. He was an astonishingly active man working right up until his recent illness. He took pride in making sure each Firth painting frame was just perfect. They were all hand made by Graham in his Essex workshop. He was a gentle, kind man who will be missed by all those who knew him. Our condolences to his wife Mary and his three chidren.
