“It is not just to undertaking some technical restoration but first its really to understand the object in it’s original character. That means the materials it’s made from, and the technologies which were used … at the time. Only if you understand how the object in the first place was made can you choose a way of restoration and conservation in harmony with the original character of the object.”
