Today I completed work on the two antique stoneware urns my client brought in earlier this week. After sculpting and carving a new spout and repairing chips and broken handle, I layered earth pigments before glazing to obtain a realistic depth of field. Now my client will be able to enjoy memories of her mother and her childhood for many years to come. #fff #lfl #jeffjohnsonrestorations #antiquerepair #art #antiquerestoration #raleighnc #instafollow #ceramics

I frequently am asked to repair other people's incorrect repair efforts. You can see the before and after photos here. Another firm repaired this chair leg after it was broken during a move. After it failed it was brought to me. The other firm used Brad's which acted like wedges and split the leg. You can see them in my before photos. Generally speaking, nails and brads should not be used in most furniture repairs. #fff #lfl #jeffjohnsonrestorations #antiquerepair #art #antiquerepair #raleighnc #instafollow

Well, I had some good guesses but the correct answer is that this is an Apothecary snow globe from the 1800's. Pharmacist used to hang these in their shops and fill them with brightly colored water. I am doing this one for Southern Village Pharmacy in Chapel Hill. You can read about them here http://www.pharmacy.arizona.edu/visitors/pharmacy-museum/show-globes

Preliminary repairs to the 400+ year old apothecary table are going well. The color difference in the photos is due to different light sources

Yesterday I cleaned and sealed the damage. Today I am filling the damage. After drying for 24 hours I will level and begin applying pigment to this antique card table. #antiquerepair #antiquerestoration #jeffjohnsonrestorations #raleighnc

Be kind to your antiques. I have this 400 year old apothecary table in the shop to repair some unfortunate damage to its finish and to undergo an overall checkup and stabilize the joints. It dates to the early 1600s and has a beautiful patina. #antiquerestoration #antiquerepair #jeffjohnsonrestorations #raleighnc

This will be an interesting project to start after New Year's. I will be restoring this vintage store sign for the former "Tiny's Beauty Shop.". #antiquerestoration #jeffjohnsonrestorations #2016projects
