Treasure the beauty of imperfection inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, meaning gold repair.
‘New kintsugi’ is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the old Kintsugi technique. The story goes that Kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged Chinese pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetically pleasing: gold repair. This art became so popular that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of Kintsugi.
The ‘New kintsugi repair kit' combines this lovely old technique with new easy to use technology, encouraging people to mend broken artefacts instead of throwing them away. Even more so, the golden seams emphasise the cracks and thus celebrate the beauty of imperfection. By repairing an object, the product becomes unique and personal.
One kit can be used multiple times to fix up to 10 items. Can be used on many materials in addition to ceramic, such as glass, wood, marble, or hard plastics. Requires 48 hours dry time.
