webinar "Stain Reduction of Ceramics", 11/11/2021

Icon's Ceramics and Glass Group are hosting an online lecture on Stain Reduction delivered by Lauren Fair. The lecture will be held on 11th November 2021, 5:00 - 6:30 pm GMT.

Talk Summary : The decision to reduce stains on ceramic objects can often be fraught with challenges: what is the nature of the stain? If I try to remove it and fail, could it become more visible? Do I risk leaving chemicals within the body that could cause harm later on? Does the stain hold intrinsic value to the object, and should I remove it at all? This lecture addresses these questions and more by sharing the latest research on stain reduction of ceramics at Winterthur Museum and the University of Delaware (USA). The theory behind current protocols is explained in detail, and case studies are presented to offer a range of stain reduction scenarios experienced by the presenter for over a decade of teaching and public dissemination of this work.
