“Quality with a Conscience”
The following pictures include examples of a few restorations in my portfolio. These are before and After pics. Every piece is individual and requires it’s own unique approach (generally speaking). I approach each project from an art conservation and ethics perspective. Occasionally, with this approach the final product (repair) may be slightly visible…this may be the result of decisions made between myself and the owner based on their ultimate goal. A decision like this sometimes involves considerations regarding the piece. e.g. What is it made of? Is it an artifact? What is the age? Rare? Can a restoration be removed safely in the future. What is the value?
Porcelain is one of my specialties (Meissen, Limoges, Dresden, Lladro and more). I work on all types of painted and non painted surfaces (e.g. wood, gypsum, resin, fiberglass, glass, crystal, porcelain, ceramics, terracotta, etc). I am a gold leaf gilder (water and oil) and I have years of experience restoring antique 23kt gold leaf ornamental frames. I am trained in ‘the old masters techniques’ and make my own gesso and glues from scratch.
