Another altar, less ancient.

A video of the work we did in Scotland in 2014, conserving the sculpted reredos in the Scottish Episcopal Church in Ayr.



Ancient photo in the Ancient Art Museum (Namur, Belgium, 1997!)

Stabilizing flaking paint on a medieval altar.  Back when I had hair.  Photo credit goes to Myriam Serck-Dewaide, my fellowship supervisor in 1996-1997 at the Royal Institute for Artistic Heritage (IRPA) of Belgium.  Myriam was the head of the sculpture conservation lab then and soon thereafter became the director of IRPA.

Flying to Paris tomorrow. Versailles here I come !
