We do conservation and restoration of artworks made of terracotta, stone, metal, plaster, wood, ivory, glass, ceramic, and other materials. We provide disaster recovery services for art collections requiring treatment in response to fire, water mold, wind, and accidental damage.
In addition, we offer examination of artworks, with a conditions report that outlines the overall condition combined with detailed photographic documentation as well as technical examinations, material analysis, and more. We also work with art insurances and we provide preventive conservation and collection advice and maintenance.
How We Work
We first examine the artwork and conduct research to gather as much information about the artwork itself, the style, techniques, and materials used. Then we assess the project scope and time-to-completion as well as the necessary methodologies, techniques, storage conditions, equipment, tools, and materials to be used. We then create all necessary documentation including a project proposal. Upon the client’s approval, the item is placed in our modern and highly secure laboratory where our experienced employees proceed with various conservation or restoration steps according to the defined treatment protocol, using only reversible and non-invasive techniques and honoring the artist’s original intent. We document each phase of the project. Finally, we present the restored artwork to our clients and inform them about optimal storage practices.
We provide museum quality conservation and continuously work to achieve perfection.
