Can "Designer" Glass Art Really Be Repaired?

Your Tiffany lamp or your Waterford crystal vase is the centerpiece of your living room - your pride and joy. Your care and nurturing of it only eclipsed by the care you provided your children or your beloved pet. True, it is an object - but is indeed an object of ART.

But when your lamp or your vase is cracked or broken, what do you do?

You might try to fix it yourself, but no doubt you will be unhappy with the results especially if you purchase hardware adhesive which is inherently inferior. You need a glass repair professional, with years of experience in the glass restoration field and with the many forms that glass art takes. The kind of seamless repair and glass restoration you are looking for is best achieved through the talents of a true glass artisan.

But just what sort of glass art do you have that needs restoration?

Steuben Tiffany Daum Lalique Galle Loetz Pairpoint Waterford Baccarat Kosta Orrefors All contemporary glass sculpture forms An experienced glass restoration professional will tell you that these brands of glass art are often quite restorable. The manner of repair and the degree of invisibility of the repair will both vary based upon the skill level and experience of the professional you employ, as well as the type of piece being repaired and to what degree it was damaged.

Repairing "contemporary designer" glass is a skill that glass artisans have painstakingly taken years to master. Take a look at the pieces repaired by the professional and in many cases you will no doubt be hard pressed to identify the initial damage. In fact, before you hire any glass restoration professional, always review photos of past art they have previously restored in order to gauge the mastery of their work.

Typically, what sorts of damage can be addressed by a glass repair professional?

Chips in the edge of a vase, goblet or bowl Rerolling and beveling of broken glass edges Cracks in a vase or lamp Scratches and cloudiness in the exterior of the glass Replicating worn finishes on many types of glass art Replacement of glass daubers in glass jars and bottles Re-cutting and reshaping of broken glass figurines and geometrically shaped glass vases Re-frosting of many types of glass art Replicating missing pieces in a glass sculpture of art piece, reattaching a glass figure or sculpture to its base Of course, this is just a small representative list of the many types of glass repair and restoration projects undertaken by glass artisans every day.

When your glass art is damaged, you need to know that you can turn back the hands of time to before the piece was damaged. With an experienced glass repair professional, you really can do just that. In most cases, through the artisan's skill and craftsmanship, your original glass art can be restored to its original grandeur.
