Our repair and restoration services include almost any antique, collectible, art objects or picture frames. As you may see from our Before and After example page, the range of repairs we can perform is diverse - it can be on a simple crack, chipped item or a multiple breaks and / or on items with missing pieces. Lakeside Pottery can match the ceramic material and restore the original look and feel. As an option, we have the unique capability, as ceramic artists, of taking an impression of missing pieces, reproducing them from clay and kiln firing the duplicated pieces (instead of a "cold" filler option) to insure uniformity of materials. At times, making a Custom Made replica in our pottery studio is a more cost effective option which you may choose.
Satisfaction guaranteed: We do not require payment until you are 100% satisfied with the end results (we'll e-mail you high resolution pictures for review). Our repair process yields extremely strong bond of broken pieces and repair will not change colors with time. Short video illustrating and example of our work process.
Pricing: The cost of repairing a damaged item depends on the type and extent of the damages taking the following into our calculations:
- Is removal of an old repair attempt is required?
- How many breaks, cracks or chips?
- Are pieces missing? If yes, will we be required to fabricate them?
- How large of a surface area needs to be repainted and how many shades of colors are required to match?
- What repair type is chosen?
- Does the restoration cost make financial sense?
- Will it be better, if possible, to create a replica on commission using our Pottery Made to Order services?
