Repairing Pottery and Porcelain: A Complete Guide by Lesley Acton

This step-by-step guide gives a clear account of all aspects of the repair of objects from the simplest everyday plate to a complex porcelain figurine. It is written not only for those who may need good practical and technical information but also as a handbook for students and for those working professionally. Along with detailed methods and advice on materials and techniques, the authors discuss the question of conservation and restoration and whether and to what extent valuable objects should be restored. Sections range from how to recognize the different types of ceramic body and assess the appropriate technique for their repair, to using fillers to restore and remould missing fragments, and polishing, painting and guilding.
