Classic Religious Statues




Statue Restoration Services

In 2003 Tom was approached by a young man who wanted to learn how to make statues. So began a casual two-year apprenticeship, during which time Tom taught James everything he had learned over his 70-year career about manufacturing and restoring plaster statues.

James was a dedicated student and learned well. Here is an example of his work:

Sadly, James closed his restoration business several years ago. The only artist in Australia still offering these services is Joseph in Melbourne. You can contact him via the Contact Us page.
