Metals Conservation

Metals conservation within the wider cultural heritage community is complex, diverse and never the same.

Ian Clark Restoration has extensive experience of supplying mixed materiel and collections care solutions. We provide a flexible and blended metals conservation service for a broad range of objects for public and private sector clients.

Routine or planned maintenance work can be carried out as part of exhibition and gallery projects or readying for loan agreements.

Extensive materials knowledge and informed hands on experience of construction techniques and technical and decorative finishing underpins our ability to provide a trusted and sensitive service where your project is in safe hands.

Our uniquely structured company which blends conservation engineering with architectural and decorative arts experience allows us to provide comprehensive and far-reaching metals conservation support to a very broad and diverse range of clients.

With projects ranging from conserving the world’s oldest tinned Christmas pudding for the National Museum of the Royal Navy to a section of the Iraqi Super-gun for The Imperial War Museum to an Antony Gormley sculpture to the world’s first undersea global communication cable system at Porthcurno Ian Clark can provide a dedicated, focused and client-led service.

We have conserved cherished music awards to an Enigma Machine to rare engineering models to firearms and military medals, household items, folk art, social history, transport, decorative art, industrial, maritime and architectural cultural heritage.
