Unfortunately with my business and employees breakages occur more often than I would like, it is nice to know that should a collectible piece get broken in the future I have a trusted partner in getting the item repaired. JimGoogle Review: Just received the SECOND piece you have repaired for me and it is PERFECT!
The repair was done in half the time estimated (said it would take up to 60 days; received in 30 days). Kindest regards, MikeI just returned to Florida and opened the box with the 2 guys you repaired for us and reunited them with their brother. HilaryMarch 2014, Our Church's life size statue of Mary had extensive damage to it after it had fallen. They sculptured new hands, repaired the many broken areas and repainted the entire statue with it's many details. I wanted to let you know that my Mary and Jesus statue arrived today and it turned out so nicely! Before he commenced the repair work, Morty walked us through the procedure he intended to employ.
He sent us detailed photos pin-pointing each of the areas of actual damage and areas of potential damage that we might wish to address since we had the opportunity to reach the interior of the sculpture while Morty was making the many repairs. Morty and Patty repaired a family heirloom that I thought was broken beyond repair, but they did a museum quality repair and I am so thankful I found them!!! Sincerely, JoePatty and Morty - Thank you SO MUCH for the repair on Scott's Hawaiian Whale Mug.
He loved your work so much that we will be sending another mug that needs repair in hopes you can work your magic.
I say this only to emphasize the importance that many of the souvenirs (primarily artwork and statues) had for me. Some items were for my personal collection and others were gifts for family, close friends and important clients.Before departing South Africa, we packaged several stone statues and made arrangements for Fed-Ex to ship back to the US. Fed-ex immediately agreed to waive the shipping and reimburse me for the cost of all of the items, but this obviously did not alleviate the massive disappointment.I searched for a statue restoration business in greater New York as a long shot hope that someone might be able to get the statues to a presentable form at a somewhat reasonable cost. I am blown away that they got the statues (each broken into 15 pieces or more) into a state that really looks better than new. JoanDear Morty, The statue arrived today and I want to compliment you (and Patty) for restoring it to its original appearance. It is good to know that there is a studio like yours that we can turn to in the future if we need any additional repairs. Happy Holidays, LorettaPatty and Morty: I wanted you to know, belatedly, that you did a miraculous job of repairing the nouveau bowl. After months of searching for someone to repair the handle I found Morty and Patty at Lakeside Pottery.
Frank BakerDear Patty and Morty, The repair exceeds all my expectations, I cannot tell the platter was ever damaged! Thank you again-DavePatty and Morty, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on the repair of the pitcher. We hope we never find ourselves in need of pottery repair again but if we do I know who to turn to.
Kathleen P.I had a vintage piece of Mexican Folk Art (a large ceramic pitcher) designed by world famous artist repaired by Lakeside Pottery. The repairs had to be structurally sound, and the various surface textures, colors and patterns matched so they blended with the undamaged surfaces.
The repairs required a number of skills, an understanding of the historic nature of the art, a knowledge of structures, materials, and painting----- skills that Lakeside applied to the restoration.Lakeside made a thorough examination of the piece before doing any work to determine how best to repair the damage. In doing so they found that the piece had been previously repaired, and were able to correct it. Once it was determined that the pitcher could be repaired and the best way to do it, Lakeside explained the process in great detail, how long it would take and what it would cost. The work was expertly done and when finished the pitcher was stronger than it had been, and the repairs could not be seen or felt when running your hand over the surface.This is just one example.
Lakeside has repaired 6 other pieces of ceramic Mexican Folk Art for me, each with a different set of challenges and in each case the repairs were flawless.I cannot thank Patty and Morty at Lakeside Pottery enough for the incredible repair work they did for us. And while I'm thrilled that they were able to repair the tagine so well, I'm equally thrilled at what a nice experience it was. ChrisMorty from Lakeside Pottery repaired a small saltbox for me that had strong sentimental value. The repairs required reconstructing complex shapes that had broken off the figures, adhering them to the body, and painting them to match the original colors. Using only materials that would not damage the art work, they restored the broken pieces so the repairs were stronger than the original clay construction. All the work was done with great care and expertise and when finished the repairs were invisible to the eye and touch.It was a pleasure working with Morty and Patty. If you are looking for a museum-quality ceramic repair shop, Lakeside Pottery can provide that service.Alan Eliot Goldberg, Architect, and Folk Art CollectorRestoring broken vase.
