Sculpture Conservation and Restoration

The field of Sculpture Conservation covers a broad spectrum of three dimensional works of art which include ceramic, plaster, marble, metal, stone, wood, glass, mixed media, as well as man made materials. Due to this variety, this specialty demands an extensive knowledge of sculpture materials and fabrication techniques, both historic and contemporary. The most usual treatments are stabilization of the structures, cleaning of the surfaces, loss compensation and inpainting, all of them oriented to the recovery of its original appearance.
