We can replicate your antique glass pieces, whether you are looking for duplication or restoration work. Possibilities include glassblowing into metal forms, pulling waste moulds from original pieces for casting or slumping forms, or sculpting a new original of your design and recreating entire pieces.

It is extremely rare to be able to put a broken piece back together, but if you have pictures of the original, or better yet an existing unbroken similar piece to use as a working model and/or pull a mould off of, we will create a new work that is indistinguishable from the original.

Restoration is a lengthy and expensive process, but sometimes, it is just plain worth it!

Press moulded glass.

We assisted the client to replicate antique elements to restore a variety of household items; mirror frames, chandeliers, and candlesticks.

For the crescent we had to machine the metal mould to recreate these antique mirror frame accents. We ended up with a perfect match indistinguishable from the originals. The flower was sculpted in wax and fabricated in a bronze mould.
