Ornamental repairs
Through the process of refurbishing gallery spaces, damage was incurred to the existing plaster and fibrous plaster decorations. The rooms consisted of classical ornament alongside arts and crafts ornamentation. The ceiling rose was also lost behind overboarding and needed to be recreated.
New skirting was created in situ to match the existing plaster skirting. Ceiling roses were cast and fixed in place following technical drawings. Squeeze moulds were taken of enriched mouldings and patrae so as to produce new single casts. Some details on the arts and crafts mouldings which had been damaged in the process of the refurbishment were modelled back in situ by hand with dental tools and paint brushes in plaster of paris.
