I repair a variety of clay, porcelain, ceramic and ceramic-like pieces. When all the broken parts are present the repair is done by using marine grade and artist epoxies and putty's, which actually makes the repair stronger then the original piece and able to withstand exterior conditions.
When I receive a repair that has missing parts and/or needs substancial finished strength, I can recreate and sculpt that part using pottery clay that is then fired and attached using the previously stated materials.
The artistry comes in matching the colors, sheen, reflection (and sometimes aging) of the new part(s) or repaired part(s) to the original surfaces.
Please email me a picture of your broken item and i will provide you a no obligation cost estimate.
Precious Moments Birdhouse "In Process"
It was brought in, in about 10 pieces.
|3 swans create the base for a glass top table. The full head had to be recreated|
in pottery clay to match visually and to be able to support the 3/4" glass top.
Below is the close-up.
|Parts of the tail and face had to be recreated in pottery clay to visually match|
and to withstand the exterior elements. Fish are installed at the Society of Four Arts Garden.
