Current Pottery Types

There are several types of pottery you can find today, including stoneware, earthenware and porcelain. Many antique pottery pieces are made of porcelain which is a very delicate material, yet highly sought after for its beauty. Porcelain pottery is made from a combination of feldspar, lint and kaolin. This pottery is glazed as a final step to make it impenetrable to water or any type of liquid. Repairing this type of pottery so that no evidence of prior damage remains visible requires the type of service and expertise provided by the Fine Art Restoration studio.
