Testimonials on our Pottery Repair & Restoration

Two pieces sent for repair.

Two pieces sent for repair. Phone call upon reciept confirmed fear one was beyond repair. The candor impressed me immensely. The second piece was part of a matched set of swans or ducks (depends on who you ask it seems). Sent both damaged piece and the matching piece for reference during the restoration process.

Both came back into my home better than I really could expect. Had to look at photos of damage piece to figure out which one had been restored. The matched set are now on display in my home. Already have received comments on the subtle beauty of both.

Thanks Patti and Carrie for all your effort and care to return beauty to reminders of one’s life adventures.

I quickly skimmed over previous

I quickly skimmed over previous testimonials but was struck by the emotion expressed by previous customers. My husband’s sweet Mother had a collection of Hummels that had various chips and cracks all over. We decided to try restoration rather than pass them on to another generation in that condition. All of them are restored now and I am so grateful to the lovely people who did such impeccable work . Thank You.

Patti and Carrie were a

Patti and Carrie were a joy to work with. Two of our chalices needed repair and Carrie did a fabulous job restoring them. When you interact with them, you know that they care as much about your piece and your satisfaction with the repair as you do. If you need something repaired/restored they should be your FIRST call!

Lin collects nativity sets.

Lin collects nativity sets. Our daughter is a Delta flight attendant. Thanks to her, Lin has sets from all over the world. When we unpacked for Christmas 2018 we discovered that two pieces were broken One was pottery and the other bone china. Lin was heartbroken. We had done business with Gloria before with great success. When we discovered that Sundog was the successor to her business we were a bit concerned. We should not have had any concern. When the pieces were returned they were in pristine condition. Patti and Carrie are noble successors to Gloria, their work is an equal to hers. You cannot go wrong trusting your heirlooms and precious objects to Sundog.

Forty plus years ago my

Forty plus years ago my mom in law gave me a Hummel Madonna that had been repaired a couple of times by her and it was rather messy. It was a very special piece to me nonetheless and it has been on my dresser all these years. During some recent remodeling it was knocked off the shelf and was broken into many pieces. I sent the figurine to Sundog Restoration and I am amazed to see, for the first time, just how lovely my treasured Madonna is after having both the old and new damage repaired. I’m so thankful that Patti and Carrie do the artistic work they do. I plan to send another piece to them very soon. I truly appreciate their work.

I have the Madonna Hummel

I have the Madonna Hummel that’s been in the family for six generations and never expected I’d find someone to repair the broken and missing pieces. I don’t even recall how I found the Sundog but am absolutely stoked that I did! The most difficult part was trusting someone to pack it properly and then trusting USPS to get it to them. The work they did is beyond amazing. It’s every bit as good as new and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve already referred them to some on my FB military art page that are looking for various repairs. The communications throughout was exceptional and I look forward to talking with them of my next request.
Thank you Sundogs!

Incredible! Far exceeded my expectations. You took what I thought was a hopeless situation and restored it to like new. The dollar value of my lamp is minimal, the sentimental value is priceless. Thank you for restoring our priceless memory!

I received my jade dog yesterday. You did a GREAT job! It was broken as long as I can remember and who knows what happened to the original leg. I am seeing him whole for the first time. I also wanted to thank you for attaching him to the base. This way he is not as likely to get broken again…..Please keep me informed about your new venture. If I ever have the need I will gladly use your services.
