About UK China Repairs and Restorations Restorer David Battams.
I live in Milton Keynes, in leafy Buckinghamshire, here in the United Kingdom, famous for, amongst other things, its concrete cows, roundabouts and many trees and plenty of green areas.
I have been restoring since 1998. I worked for almost two years under the guidance of a professional restorer of over 20 years experience, before deciding to go it alone.
I do restoration work for dealers, private collectors and Insurance companies and have over the years, worked on a huge variety of ceramics.
I often Restore Chinese porcelain, Royal Worcester, Winton, Meissen, Lladro, Nao, Dresden, Hummel, Royal Doulton, Beswick, Hancocks, Coalport, Wedgwood, Worcester, Maling, Clarice Cliff, Moorcroft and Royal Doulton to name but a few.
I also restore Glass, Stoneware, Resins and Plaster including Border Fine Arts, Weta and Fairweather resins.
I take in work from all over the UK and also have some international clients.
I enjoy my work immensely and always strive for perfection and customer satisfaction, also finding and using the best materials and techniques in the field.
In 2001 I moved house and have been able to install a fully equipped workshop to keep up with the growing workload.
I have also formed a Private email group for fellow restorers and materials suppliers from all over the world and enjoy the sharing of knowledge with them and keeping up to date with all the latest and best techniques in restoration today.
