Conservation and Restoration.
The conservation and restoration of sculpture on any scale, from ancient to contemporary, is the main focus of our work.

We are qualified to carry out cleaning, consolidation and repair treatments on traditional and contemporary materials; employing a wide range of techniques.

All of our staff possess a qualification in either fine art or practical conservation; from this background comes an inherent appreciation and understanding of sculptural materials and techniques. This hands-on practical knowledge is essential in being able to carry out sensitive conservation and restoration on a diverse range of objects.

Maintenance and Surveys.
The regular maintenance of sculpture is often overlooked resulting in extensive and costly conservation. We can provide a complete survey of a sculpture collection to assess the condition of each artwork and advise on conservation treatments and a regular maintenance schedule. Taylor Pearce have recently carried out a condition survey for all the sculpture at the Houses of Parliament; we provide regular maintenance of sculpture for several institutions including; English Heritage, Kew Gardens and the Tate.
