Terracota and Faience

When it comes to special media like terracotta and faience, we have the technology and skills to restore or repair using a variety of methods, either working in situ or by supplying and fixing new material.

Any conservation project demands meticulous planning and research; and working with clays and plasters such as terracotta and faience is no different. Matching new blocks to existing materials is a very exacting science and since there are few suppliers out there, just sourcing new terracotta can take anything from eight to twenty weeks before site fixing can even begin.

Our reputation in this incredibly specialist field of terracotta and faience repairs has brought us commissions on such notable and prestigious conservation projects as the Harvey Nichols / Debenhams’ building and surrounding Victoria Quarter in Leeds; the listed facade of St Mary’s Gate, Sheffield; and 76 King Street in Manchester, now home to big-name fashion houses DKNY, Jigsaw and others.
