Stephen Koob, chief conservator, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Recorded in the conservation lab at The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York.
Chief conservator Stephen Koob gives insight on the conservation and restoration of a hemispherical bowl with inlaid nilotic scenes. Although having been broken, the piece came to the Corning Museum of Glass assembled, missing 1-2% of the object. Koob explains how the piece was intially made, then details the steps of disassembling with the use of chemicals. Pieces were then cleaned, and reassembled using an adhesive, starting from the center and working outward. Restoration was done using resin to fill in missing pieces.
