    Our clients for this project, the Martins, wrote this lovely letter after they received their restored sculptures:

    We have used Museum Quality Restoration Services and Mark Fry to repair and rejuvenate two different family heirlooms, wooden sculptures crafted in the 1950s and 1960s by Melinda’s artist aunt, Rosemary Cahoon. Mark carefully examined each piece ahead of time for cracks, holes and other problems and then shared what approach he would recommend for restoration, including what the tradeoffs were with other methods. We then agreed on approach, price and an approximate schedule and paid Mark a 50% deposit. read more
