      • Product Description:
        The beauty of an imperfect repair. Kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold. The story goes that kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, kintsugi (gold repair). This art became such a hype that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi. This new Kintsugi kit is a way of combining this lovely old technique with new technology, gluing porcelain back together, based on the old kintsugi technique. By messy mending you emphasise the marks and scars of a product giving it a new perspective and beauty while offer it longevity. One kit can repair approximately eight normal plates, with 3 full cracks. The glue is epoxy based and can also be used to fix wood.
