Vases, dishes, decorative plates and a whole range of different ceramics come into our workshop for repair and conservation.
Our Ceramics Repair and Conservation Process
In cases where a previous ceramics repair has been attempted we carefully remove the existing unsightly glue. We then carry out a museum repair which involves full dismantling, cleaning up previous restoration, followed by careful re-assembly using the appropriate adhesives. In the majority of instances professional re-gluing is sufficient.
There are occasions however when it is necessary to make up replacement parts e.g. where significant damage has occurred or an item is part of a collection and it needs to look in its original state. When the ceramic item has been repaired the previously damaged area is glazed and hand-painted to match the original surface areas, resulting in a near invisible repair.
