We want to send out a hearty congratulations to friend of this blog, and fellow majolica collector Randi Tolsky-Schwartz who had a very nice article written about her talent for ceramic restoration by the Wilmette Beacon.
Randi has had an active restoration business in the Chicago suburb of Wilmette for many years. We had the good fortune to visit her workroom a few years back and must say that her work shelves are filled with some heart-breaking pieces of damaged ceramic. Her ability to restore their beauty, while still making a good living, must be a satisfying way to spend the day.
Randi also runs a retail shop, Raven and Dove in the front of her workroom where she sells a nice upscale selection of decorative accessories, including a beautiful selection of majolica.
Though the article was published a couple of months ago this was our first opportunity to read it and I recommend it heartily. To read it for yourself head on over to the Beacon's Web site.
