Anatoly and Rena Krishtul began fixing ceramics more than twenty years ago and now mend pieces for auction houses, galleries, and collectors. If necessary, they’ll form, fire, glaze, and paint a copy of, say, a figurine’s missing head. Recent projects have ranged from a small candle snuffer with a broken handle ($150, four weeks) to a shattered Han Dynasty horse ($3,500, twelve weeks).
