Age old Japanese art

Kintsugi is the hundreds of year’s old Japanese craft of altering broken stoneware with unique enamel cleaned with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. Excellent creases of gold gleam in the breaks

of fired product, giving a remarkable appearance to the piece. This repair strategy praises the antique’s one of a kind history by stressing the cracks and breaks as opposed to stowing away or

camouflaging them. Kintsugi frequently makes the repaired piece much more excellent than the first, renewing the antique with new life. The specialty of Kintsugi goes back to the late fifteenth

century, making it over 500 years of age.
