Conservation and Restoration
Should a much loved piece be broken or suffer losses, cracks or corrosion we can assist with the services of our museum trained conservator, Steven Pickman. Steven graduated from Brandeis University in 2001 with a BA in Anthropology (specializing in Archaeology) and was a recipient in 2008 of a Master of Arts degree from the UCLA/Getty Conservation program in Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials. Steven has provided professional and technical services in addressing the treatment needs required for artifacts and objects of private clientele, galleries, and museum institutions within the greater Washington, DC region. He has worked for a number of institutions, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the South Street Seaport Museum, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the National Air and Space Museum.
Treatments are available for objects made from ceramic, glass, stone, metal, wood, leather and ivory just to name a few. A full treatment report is provided showing a before and after photo, detailing all materials and methods used in either the restoration or conservation of the object.
