The classical theory of Conservation of Oil Paintings on Canvas and Panel and all types of Fine Art, has necessarily involved only minimal intervention. This is done to retain the integrity of the aged art object and to avoid further damage. However, in other more contemporary cases such as porcelain, ceramics, pottery, jades, ivory collectibles and family heirlooms repair, some clients prefer the invisible repair technique which will return the item to “like new” condition. Even though we typically recommend the use of the best Art Restoration practices, we do honor the customer requests. The products used to conceal cracks for the “invisible repair” can be easily removed without causing additional stress to the artifact.

    I have a Japanese vase that got knocked over and some small surface pieces broke off. Could the pieces be put together and re-adhered to the vase? The vase itself didn’t break.

  4. Ardenia says:

    Yes, the pieces can be put together. You can email me at ardenia@roadrunner.com or call (949) 575-3962 for more information. Thank you, Ardenia Capannelli
