Subject: Support for large ceramic

Support for large ceramic

We are currently planning to de-install a large 320 BC ceramic
volute krater (120.0cm x 70.0cm) from the Greek and Roman gallery at
the Detroit Institute of Arts for conservation. The krater was
broken into many fragments and poorly restored. We are looking for a
safe way to transport it to the conservation lab, which is located
to in the same building, as well as safe method to disassemble
krater. Has anyone ever worked on a restored ceramic of this size?
Does anyone know of any publications, which discuss these kinds of

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
