Repairing the Hand of a Statue

Project Overview

Springdale Cemetery, in Peoria, Illinois, is host to many fine, vintage statues. Over time, a statue of Jesus during the Sermon on the Mount, lost its outstretched right hand. The Springdale Historic Preservation Foundation contracted Heritage Restoration to recreate the missing hand and finish it in such a way that the hand would blend with the 70 year old exterior of the original statue.


 

Cleaning Lead Came

Project Overview

Heritage’s staff recently completed the restoration of several stained glass panels for a local church. These pieces had become worn and discolored with age. Using our new stained glass repair studio, the glass was carefully disassembled, cleaned, and put back together with fresh lead. The restored stained glass were placed into four custom-built light boxes for indoor use. Once the assembly was complete, we delivered and installed the light boxes at our client’s location.

 

Saint Anthony of Padua Altar

Project Overview

Heritage Restoration and Design was contracted to provide interior furnishings to the new St. Anthony of Padua church among the Centennial Hills in Las Vegas, Nevada. After waiting ten years with a rapidly growing parish community, they were finally able to build. Due to the community’s large size and small budget, the parish was unable to build both a church and pastoral center, so the new building was to be utilized for both purposes. Heritage came up with innovative techniques to create a space which could be used interchangeably as both a place of worship and a parish hall. This was accomplished by creating furnishings which both served traditional liturgical purposes but could also be easily stored as needed.

 

With great joy, Heritage Restoration and Design Studio and the renovation teams at Unity Temple are proud to announce that we received the 2018 Docomomo "Special Award of Restoration Excellence." Throughout the past decade, the Unity Temple Restoration Foundation planned and prepared for the restoration of world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Unity Temple in historic Oak Park, Illinois. Under the orchestration of the premier historic architects, Harboe Architects, Chicago-based Project Management Advisors and the Berglund Construction Company, restoration companies like Heritage were entrusted with the task of bringing back to life this international symbol of early modern architecture. In a testament to the restoration, the work at Unity Temple spurred the creation of the Special Award of Restoration Excellence as the newest categorical award offered by the US national chapter of Docomomo. We at Heritage Restoration are honored to be apart of this project and to receive recognition for the work we performed.
