Humade New Kintsugi Repair Kit
‘New Kintsugi’ is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the traditional Japanese repair technique Kintsugi. The story goes that Kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor of Japan got his Chinaware back repaired with staples. He ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, 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.
