What is this? Something new and interesting for me?

Repairs with gold - whatever next ?

As a philosophy, kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect

The Japanese have been doing it for centuries but it’s all the rage now in the West. They sell the kits at the Ceramics fairs. I have one for silver and one for gold. Originally I think they used real gold but now it’s a gold coloured resin, or epoxy glue that’s painted over with gold lacquer. Tbh, I find it horrible.

I have had people contacting me to ask if I have any cracked pots that I don't want. I am tempted to suggest that maybe they could buy a cheap undamaged pot from me and smash it themselves before fixing.

I have a 12th century Korean oil pot repaired this way. These types of repairs were not ever done in gold metal, the repair material has always been gold Japanese lacquer.

I gave my husband the gold kintsugi kit to repair a chipped pot. The gold colour is a fine dust and he opened the pot upside down! He was not happy Cheeky
