I started working in Ceramic Restoration Five years ago, I have Conserved and Restored (through the Museum of Lancashire Conservation Studio) For a number of Museums Including Judges Lodgings the Museum of ChildHood, Salford Football Museum ,Wigan Museum Chester Museum to name just a few.
I Restore Royal Doulton, Moorcroft, Lladro, Beswick , Some of the repairs include Chips, Hairline Cracks, missing Fingers etc
The Dolls that arrive at the Studio normaly need re-stringing, new eyes wigs or Voice boxes we also repair Chatty Chathy Voice boxes, we also Restore Teddies.
My latest project is an Old Collison Rocking Horse and a Glass Shop Sign from the Bury Museum.
My work is fascinating I never know what will turn up at my Studio.
