Conservation and restoration of ceramic objects is an important and challenging subject, dedicated to the preservation and protection of objects of historical and personal value. Degradation of an object occurs as a result of the interaction between the environment or with the materials that form the object however, in the case of ceramics, environmental factors are the major cause. There are several ways in which ceramics break down, physically and chemically.

For many years Romano Ranieri School has been teaching Ceramic Restoration to the beginners.

This is possible thanks to the school laboratory where we’re implementing improved techniques.

The lessons are composed by two parts, one theoretical, the other practical.

In brief the different phases for the restoration of ceramics:

ceramics is a porous material and so it can be treated with tile adhesive (Vinavil Glue for example). Obviously, every fragment to paste, should be meticulously cleaned before treatment.

Sometimes there could be some cracks  on the surface, therefore the best thing is to use plaster, a matter ready to available.

The final step is painting fix and, if necessary, we applied a thin layer of impregnation.
