Restore Objet's d'Art
We originally restored this Shearwater plate after the Katrina flood. It was then sold at auction for $5,200. The new owner broke it again: here's the before/after:
Restoring and repairing figurines.
Bisque shepherdess. The artist said this challenge was fun, a real 3-D jigsaw puzzle... but she could replace the lost parts.
This expensive Lladro figurine was broken in two places and some fingers were missing. New fingers were fabricated and finished to match. The whole unit was reassembled using a bonding agent developed for NASA and the space program.
Repairing large broken glass structures.
Broken glass lampshade (circa 1930-40) bonded with same agen as porcelain; won't discolor. One piece missing, created fill, dyed to match.
Restoration of faience porcelain statue bases
Bases of dog statues were crushed, many pieces missing. Parts were fabricated and finished with matching colors and glaze. This customer was very happy with the work, see her letter here.
Nippon vase restored, missing parts fabricated and finished.
Rebuilt doll's foot, finished to match.
