Case Study

Pr
oject: Iznik Chimney
Client: Victoria & Albert Museum

We were commissioned to remove, conserve and remount the Iznik ceramic tiled fireplace situated in the corridor adjacent to Gallery 33. The fireplace was to form part of a touring exhibition of Islamic artefacts, so it was essential to design and construct a lightweight, demountable structure to support the exhibit.

Lichfield Cathedral, Staffordshire - Bishop Selwyn’s Memorial

Bishop Selwyn’s memorial is decorated with Minton tiles, some of which had separated from the substrate. The on-glaze decoration had also degraded in places. Heritage Tile Conservation was commissioned to remove, restore and reinstate the defective tiles and to consolidate the fragile on-glaze decoration.

Below are sections of the Minton tilework removed and undergoing restoration, prior to reinstatement in Bishop Selwyn’s Memorial, The Lady Chapel, Lichfield Cathedral.
