Silver Sculpture

Category: Conservation

This piece was heavily tarnished, and I used a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser to treat it. In the case of very intricate surfaces, laser cleaning can effectively clean the object without damaging the metal.

The aim of the treatment was to remove the tarnish from this piece, which belongs to a series of silver sculptures that emphasise an ethereal look.
