Display, design & manufacture

11 14th century carved effigies, Saddell Abbey, Kintyre, conservation and in new display, within new structure.

Graciela Ainsworth Sculpture Conservation has long-term experience in designing and manufacturing a wide variety of solutions for the display of sculptures and other artworks that range from simple wall fixings to intricate display cases, mounts and plinths.

We will also undertake the installation of the object along with its bespoke method of display. Our designs have been implemented by The National Galleries of Scotland, The National Trust for Scotland, The National Museum of Scotland and the NHS as well as by many private clients.

  • We have close links with structural engineers who will provide expertise and advice in matters relating to our work.
  • With our trusted stainless steel specialist, with whom we have worked closely over the last twenty years, we design and manufacture various displays, for internal and external situations.
  • We work closely with respected cabinet makers for the creation of bespoke wooden plinths.
  • We use a variety of materials including acrylic, stone, wood and stainless steel for smaller displays.
