Essentials in the Care and Conservation of Historical Ceramic Objects
Victoria L. Oakley (au); Kamal K. Jain (au); Deborah Swallow (fr)
Ceramic objects form a substantial part of museum collections worldwide. However, inappropriate environments, careless handling and unsuitable treatments can bring about the deterioration of these objects. This guide aims to provide a basic methodology for the care and conservation of historical ceramics for professionals working on collections in relative isolation. The book explains how an awareness of the nature of the ceramic medium is core to an understanding of ceramics. The influence of their physical properties on the way in which ceramic objects deteriorate and are subsequently treated is explained. Guidance is also given on options for treatment and the use of appropriate materials and techniques. Illustrations.
