with combined experience
of over forty years, we are specialists in the complete
repair of objects
'd' art and artifacts.
All work is done in-house by both master restorers and our highly trained artisans, who specialize in unique areas of restoration.
Our specially developed filling compound allows us to create missing areas and make missing parts (legs, arms, fingers, etc.).
Our bonding agents vary from traditional standard polymers to state-of-the-art epoxies.
Our paints are archieval non-yellowing.
Our glaze (restorers glaze) has been specially formulated to our specifications by a leading art supply company.
Ceramic, porcelain and pottery, with their variety of glazed surfaces (gloss, semi-gloss, or matt) can be perfectly replicated.
The translucency and color variations of jade can be reproduced as well as the textures, tones and color variations of marble, alabaster, ivory and stone.
The aged surfaces and patinas of artifacts can also be perfectly replicated.
It is to be noted that repairs, although very durable, are cosmetic. Because items are not refired in a kiln, restorations are more suited for decorative than utilitarian purposes.
"Wnen I returned
home with my beautifully restored Steuben, my son wagered that he could
detect where it had been broken. Even though he cheated by using a magnifying
glass, he lost the bet. Thanks to you for your terrific craftsmanship."
"As you know, I dropped
my wife's limited edition Lalique while she was away in Europe. I thought
I would have to leave town when she got back and found out what happened.
You restored it so perfectly that she is none the wiser, and the cost was
less than a divorce. Thanks and I've learned my lesson - hands off!
