Object and Sculpture Process

Knowledge of both science and historic fine art materials, along with fabrication techniques, ensures we approach each project with an in-depth treatment using a balance of art and state-of-the-art methodology .

Objects and sculptures are often created with complex layers of paint, gilding or both. At times, a microscopic and chemical analysis of their composition is needed before any conservation treatment. 

Sculpture and Object Services Include:

  • Restoration of structural integrity

  • Filling and matching of cracks and chips to surrounding area

  • Recreation and restoration of broken or lost pieces

  • Cleaning of fire and water damage
