More On Hall of Fame, A new conservation technique?

A client brought this marble top plant stand in to Studio Six Art Conservation. She got it from a friend of a friend. She thought it was pretty but a bit too wobbly. So we took a look to see what the problem could be. When I removed the marble top I saw these white squares sticking out from the four leg joins. Upon closer inspection I was dumbfounded to see that the plant stand was held together with velcro!

High School Repeat Visit

In this program held at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, local artists and five high school AP art classes work together to investigate various art topics based on what is currently on display at the museum.
The museum will be exhibiting a retrospective of one of my favorite artists, Martin Puryear. I’ll be working with the students (100 teenagers in all) to to create paper sculptures that focus on the cross over of skilled labor and fine art that is inherent to the working process of Martin Puryear.
