“Quality with a Conscience”
The following pictures include examples of a few restorations in my portfolio. These are before and After pics. Every piece I’ve worked on, is unique and requires it’s own special attention, (generally speaking). I approach each project from an art conservation and ethics perspective and as someone that truly loves and appreciates the history and art that crosses my path in this business.
Rarely, although, occasionally, the final product, (the repair), may be slightly visible…this is sometimes the result of decisions made between myself and the owner, based on their ultimate goal. A decision like this sometimes involves considerations regarding the value of each piece and the extent of damage. 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? These are just a few questions that come to mind.
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 HANDCARVED antique ornamental frames. I am trained in ‘the old masters techniques’ and make my own gesso and glues from scratch.
