Welcome to DAVID FRY POTTERY REPAIR & RESTORATION 

  • Conservation of Ceramics, Pottery , China, Figurines and Porcelain, Repair, Restoration and Conservation  based in  Newcastle upon Tyne.I offer a full service in repairing, restoring and conservation for broken, missing pieces, damaged or items showing wear and tear. Items can be  - Studio Pottery, China, Porcelain, Sculpture, Tiles, Architectural features, Studio Pottery, Leach, Cardew, Rie, etc., Antiques, Parian Ware, Objects of Art, Ornaments, Meissen, Roman, Medieval, Lladro, Beswick, etc. The items can be made from single or a combination of materials including Wood, Terracotta, Bone China, Metal, Stone, Plaster, Marble, Ivory, Jade, some types of glass,  and synthetics, etc.My types of repair:Museum Repair – This is where an items is carefully consolidated and repaired but less attempt made to hide the repair, an example is the ancient  pots you see in museums where missing areas that have been filled can be clearly seen, as they like to show in museum displays the old and the “new” repaired areas .Tidy Repair – This repair is a very good quality repair and no less effort is made in the repair process, and the repair is blended to the original as much as possible, but the finished repair is not guaranteed totally invisible.I work usually to the ‘tidy standard’ repair and conservation, that means the repair will sometimes be  visible i.e.. the fine lines of the joins and replaced parts,  however depending on the object’s material and colour/texture a close to ‘invisible’ repair is  sometimes possible, I can advise you if it will be or not, email photos to me or bring the item into my studio for assessment.Items can be posted to me and I suggest you use Special Delivery insured and box and pack them well, or pieces can be brought directly into my studio in Newcastle (phone first to check opening times)click here for email or phone or contact info for further enquires and estimates.Prices are based on the time it takes, how many pieces the item is in, how large the item is, weather any pieces are missing and need to be remade/modelled, and if any old glue or repairs have to be removed first.
