The beauty of an imperfect ceramics repair.
Kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold.

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 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.

The art of embracing damage. With New kintsugi we combine this lovely old technique with new technology. By messy mending you emphasise the marks and scars of a product giving it a new perspective and beauty while offer it longevity.

Feel free to also use the New kintsugi repair kit on almost any other material next to ceramic. think of repairing glass, marble, wood repairs, most hard plastics etc.

You can use the kit mutiple times.

Let us create and treasure the beauty of imperfection.
