Best Ceramics Repair

  • Ark Restoration

    252 West 37th Street, seventeenth fl; 212-244-1028

    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).
