2007. 248 S. 95 Farb- und 16 s/w Abb., 17 Tabellen. Kt.Interim Meeting of the ICOM-CC Working Group, August 27-30, 2007, Nova Gorica, Slovenia
This volume includes the papers and summaries of posters presented at the meeting, as well as short descriptions of some major collections of glass and ceramics in Slovene museums. The contributions are grouped into three categories – Research, Practice and Training. Many of the papers present both the results of preliminary scientific research as well as practical conservation treatments. This volume of papers confirm once more the importance of collaboration in the conservation field.
The papers presented herein cover a wide range of subjects of interest to glass and ceramics specialists. Research topics include a practical investigation of glass fracture, the application of new methods to the analysis of glass and ceramics, a study of the staining of archaeological glass, compositional analysis of enamels as well as as study of the materials used to treat them, and an evaluation of a common method of salt testing for archaeological ceramics.
Practical subjects concerning glass include the study and treatment of reverse painted glass, an innovative method of mould-making for glass vessels, and issues related to several types of architectural glass, including opus sectile, traditional Turkish windows, and modern stained glass windows. Several papers deal with the historical importance of old restorations on ceramics and ethical questions regarding their retention or removal. Two papers discuss the manufacturing techniques and conservation of Italian Renaissance sculptures, both free-standing and architectural. A number of papers describe specific conservation treatments of ceramics (cleaning, sorting fragments, and filling), and several papers discuss problems and potential solutions for the processing, storage and display of archaeological ceramics and glass, both in marine and terrestrial environments.
An overview of the academic training of glass and ceramics conservators in Europe is followed by detailed descriptions of the situations in Slovenia and Serbia, a model for the training in countries where such academic programs do not exist, and a description of a student internship.
