R&F is proud to have received the La Vendièene award for lifetime Achievement at the International Encaustic Artists’ EncaustiCon 2013 in Santa Fe this last week.

The award ceremony highlighted our growth from a tiny basement studio, where founder Richard Frumess formulated our superior quality encaustics and Pigment Sticks, to a business that has been in the forefront of encaustic education, research, and the promotion of the artists who have expanded encaustic into all avenues of art-making.


As Richard said in accepting the award, it is also a recognition of the collaboration that has evolved between R&F and all of you in the artist community. Far more than being simply customers, you have been the support, the incentive, the inspiration to consistently raise the standards of our efforts.
