Our Services​


Tiago Oliveira is trusted by national and international museums and important collectors in the UK and abroad, specialising in the conservation and restoration of the following materials: 

  • ceramics (porcelain, pottery, terracotta etc), 

  • glass (historical and modern) 

  • enamels (although the metal substrate may be looked at by a metals conservator). 


Work is carried out following good health and safety and ethical practices outlined in the Code of Conduct of UK's Institute of Conservation and its Conservation Standards and Ethics Guidelines.

We work closely with colleagues from other conservation and restoration areas to achieve the best possible outcome on each occasion. ​


We are confident in providing all aspects of conservation treatment including:

  • Cleaning and dismantling – reversing previous repairs

  • Securely bonding broken sections with appropriate adhesives to each specific type of object

  • Gap filling and/or Colour-filling – the latter is done, tight to the area of loss, using an epoxy resin bulked and tinted to match the original’s colour and translucency. This technique replaces the need to airbrush and thus to unnecessarily cover original surfaces. 

  • Modelling, moulding and casting missing parts – hands, fingers, handles, finials, etc.

  • Hand retouching missing decoration

  • Gilding is preferably done with genuine gold leaf and/or powder (silver is also available).


We can provide full condition assessments, treatment and monitoring reports according the client/object/collection needs. Contact us for details.
