Good day to everyone,
As some of you may know, I just spent the last two months in England learning the finer points of antique Japanese metalwork restoration under the tutelage of my friend, teacher and world authority Ford Hallam. I was fortunate enough to have the experience of working on a wide variety of pieces from iron jizai okimono, bronze vases, sword fittings and more. It was the most intense period of study that I have had in my life. I have been single mindedly pursuing classical Japanese metalwork for more than a few years now and was awarded Tokusho-The Sakaki Mayor's award at the NBSK competition this year for my entry.
After completing these past two months specifically focused on restoration both Ford and I feel that I am ready to offer my restoration services here in the US. Ford has also graciously made himself available to me through Skype for consultation if something unusual should arise.
My reasons for wanting to do this type of work aside from my art is many fold, it affords me an avenue of study that few will ever have, also very important to me, is that these works of art are treated as such and properly brought back to their original glory.
If anyone here is interested in discussing the services I offer please feel free to message me here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest in advance.
