If you have an art glass sculpture or other glass piece that is in need of repair, it is a good idea to consult with several different glass restoration experts before you decide who you will hire for the job.

As you meet with various professionals, you should be sure to ask the artisan to explain the techniques that will be used to repair your piece. Depending upon the type of damage your glass piece has endured, it occasionally might be necessary tore-sculpt the glass.

But, what exactly does re-sculpting glass mean and how is it actually used to repair your glass piece?

Through the process of re-sculpting, the glass professional will take the following steps:

  • The area around the damaged area is cut
  • The cut glass is reshaped back to its original shape
  • The piece is polished to create a crisp, sharp appearance

Clearly, cut glass restoration is a very time-consuming and tedious process. Care and precision must be used to ensure the repair is completed properly. Therefore, if your piece is damaged to the point that re-sculpting is necessary, it is likely to be somewhat expensive to complete the repair. Therefore, you will need to determine whether or not the cost of the repair is worthwhile.

Obviously, if the piece is of sentimental value to you, you will need to determine whether or not the sentimental value is worth investing the money necessary to make the repair. If you are repairing an art glass sculpture or other piece as an investment, you should research the appraised value of the piece in order to determine whether or not the cost of the repair is worth the investment. After all, you don’t want to invest more into the repair than the actual value of the piece.

Of course, when it comes to glass restoration, many different techniques may be employed to complete the job. While you shouldn’t expect the restoration expert to provide you with a detailed, step-by-step explanation of the process that will be used with the piece, the artisan should be able to explain a clear glass repair plan. Furthermore, he or she should detail the risks and benefits associated with the proposed plan. In this way, you can make an informed decision when determining what to do with your glass sculpture.
