In the commercial world Laurence’s patinations have been developed within such schemes as Nova Victoria, Sea Containers House/Hotel, De Vere Gardens and Portman Square. They have also been nominated for Eton College, Lincoln Cathedral and The Painted Hall Greenwich. These unique and bespoke patinations may be applied to Brass, Gilding Metal or PB102 to items such as speedlanes, reception desks, lift openings/cars, entrance screens, featured walls and more.
Bronze Restoration recognise the importance of demonstrating competence and best practice, commitment to health & safety and endeavours to reduce their impact on the environment. Because of this we have been accredited by organisations such as Safecontractor, Human Focus and CSCS. Laurence Flood is an ACR – Accredited Conservator-Restorer
Ever aware of our heritage and our environment our ethos is to hand down our experience to the next generation. We are able to draw on our knowledge through our collaboration with a local foundry. Recipes have been handed down through the ages and patinations are still hand applied from the ever enduring classic BMA to the unique and bespoke. We have developed several waxes and continue to make our own. Modern lacquers are applied and sheen levels are adjusted to give a natural look. To find out more Contact Us Now
