Are You In Need Of Glass Art Restoration Services?

Whether You Are In Need Of Murano Glass Repair Or Other Glass Repair Services A Skilled Artist Can Come To Your Aid!

Do you have a glass piece that is in need of restoration or repair? Whether you need a Murano glass repair service or you have another non-Murano glass piece in need of repair, it is important to hire an artist who is familiar with a variety of glass art techniques. In this way, you can be certain the artist will have the skills necessary to make the repair or restoration that is necessary for your piece.

The simple reality is that some glass pieces date back hundreds or even thousands of years. Therefore, the techniques used to create glass art can vary significantly, which means your glass art restoration and repair expert needs to be knowledgeable about techniques such as…

  • Glass blowing
    This is a process that involves blowing air through a pipe, while moving molten glass and shaping it with special tools. Cracks in these sculptures are the result of improper time in the annealing oven, poor cooling, or incompatibility between the colors that were used with the piece.
  • Hot sculpting
    Solid metal rods are used to gather molten glass, which is shaped with special tools. The process, which is generally used for larger solid pieces, many often come from the glass masters in Murano. This technique is similar to that used in glass blowing, but no blowing actually takes place.
  • Cold working
    This involves using a variety of techniques, such as grinding, cutting, sandblasting, engraving and polishing, while the glass is in its cold state. This process may also involve applying special glues in order to join pieces together.

Cold working is particularly important in glass art restoration and repair. This means it is essential to find an artist who is experienced and skilled in this area. Whether it is a Murano glass piece or not, you certainly want to be sure to get the best glass restoration or repair service possible.

When searching for someone to provide Murano glass repair services, it is also important to find an artist experienced with your specific type of glass. By finding a glass artist who has experience with the specific type of glass or art sculpture that is in need of repair, you can take comfort in knowing that the artist has the specialized knowledge necessary for completing the job properly the first time – and that your piece will be returned in better shape than when it left your hands. Sometimes, by implementing the techniques that were used when the piece was originally crafted, the artist can make repairs that blend seamlessly into the original design.
