Metal objects and sculptures

Metal objects and sculptures have graced our world for centuries, in traditional materials such as copper alloy, bronze, copper, gold, silver, and iron, through to steel, Cor-ten, and aluminium. Most metals are extremely strong, hard, and durable, but time and environmental factors can take their toll, causing corrosion and degradation. At O’Sullivan Conservation, we specialise in the conservation of metal-based objects and artworks and our skilled conservators possess a deep understanding of the unique challenges posed by different types of metal.

Our processes involve meticulous cleaning, stabilisation, and when necessary, the replication of missing elements. From ornate metalwork to metal plaques, bronze statues and modern sculptures, we bring expertise and passion to every project. Our aim is to conserve and restore the original surfaces of metal objects and sculptures, to appreciate the craftmanship and artistry these pieces represent.
