New Kintsugi Fixing Kit
We all have that special saucer, that sentimental teacup or memory-laden jug which we wish to hold on to. But what to do when they get broken?
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. This ancient technique encourages us to cherish our broken things, to focus on the flaws and celebrate imperfection. By repairing an object, the product becomes unique and personal.
This new kintsuugi repair kit by Humade take the traditional art of Kintsugi and makes it accessible to all. Within each kit is a special glue, gold dust and applicators, so you can repair your broken but still cherished objects at home.
Unlike traditional Kinsugi, this New Kintsugi repair kit can be used on almost any hard material such as glass, wood, marble, metal, hard plastic - as well as of course, ceramic.
This method of repair takes time and a little patience, it is not a super glue solution - rather It is the process of rebirthing broken things with loving care and turning break lines into features in themselves.
(Also essential if you are attending Greek weddings and likely to be emotionally impacted by plate smashing antics).
