We do restoration of outdoor bronze sculpture and other art objects, replace missing parts and re-patine discolored surfaces damaged by corrosion.

    Our conservator, Isabel M.P. Coryat, began her training in metal finishing and patination at the Johnson Atelier in 1978-1979.  Her mentor, Ronald D. Young, who was Assistant Executive Director of the Johnson Atelier at the time, is a master patineur, artist, teacher, author and authority on foundry practices especially the arcane art/science of patination.  Her background in painting and her acute sensitivity for coloration have allowed her rise to the top of her profession.

    Ms. Coryat has made a specialty of  restoring outdoor bronze statuary.  She is available for consultation, to perform condition assessments,  recommend conservation treatments and supervise the restoration of bronze sculpture.
