REPAIRING POTTERY & PORCELAIN: A Practical Guide

LESLEY ACTON & PAUL MCAULEY    Book Number: 81686    Product format: Paperback

Many people assume that once broken a ceramic object may have come to the end of its useful life, yet ceramic restoration has a long history and as far back as 7000BC holes were 'drilled' into pots and the use of fibre 'ropes' used to bind together fragments. Covering all aspects of conservation and restoration, tools and materials, examination and identification, cleaning, filling, casting, modelling and moulding, retouching and more, here is a handbook suitable for students and professionals. Now in its second edition, this step-by-step guide offers detailed advice on methods and materials, the question of how much to do in terms of conservation from the simplest plate to the most complex figurine. With case studies and written by experts, 128pp in large softback.
