DIGITAL SURFACE CONSERVATION by Craven Dunnill Jackfield

New methods have been developed by Craven Dunnill Jackfield (CDJ) to integrate 3D technologies into its specialist ceramic restoration and manufacturing process. Every restoration project is unique, requiring the application of specialist ceramic modelling skills to faithfully manufacture accurate replacements. Existing artworks and architectural features are surveyed, with working models and moulds created to interpret the complex 3D shape of the item beneath the glaze layers of an original sample. Recent advancements in their production capabilities now allow CDJ to 3D-scan ceramic artworks in situ – without the need to remove them from the wall – and subsequently reproduce new models and moulds for faithful reproduction which cannot be achieved using photography. CDJ are already working closely with conservation architects, cultural property clients and planning authorities across numerous conservation projects in commercial, transport, hospitality, public buildings, and infrastructure sectors in the UK and can offer the service to international markets as the equipment is compact and easy to transport.
