Experience the powerful process of breaking and repairing pottery using the neo-kintsugi method in a 3-hour workshop.

What Exactly is Kintsugi?

Kintsugi, an ancient Japanese art, embodies the philosophy of embracing imperfection and celebrating the beauty of brokenness. It is the meticulous practice of repairing shattered ceramics with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.

More Beautiful and Valuable after repair

Rather than concealing fractures, kintsugi accentuates them, turning flaws into intricate veins of precious metal. Also, the combination of exceptional craftsmanship, symbolic materials, cultural significance, and time investment makes kintsugi more expensive and imbues it with a unique and enduring value that transcends mere monetary worth.



Beyond its aesthetic appeal, kintsugi inspires profound reflections on acceptance, transformation, and the inherent value found in embracing life's fractures.


Takes time

Each step demands careful attention and expertise, from the meticulous cleaning and preparation of broken fragments to the precise application of lacquer and metal powders. Patience is essential as artisans must allow for drying and curing periods between each delicate layer.


Stronger at the repaired places

The traditional method involves bonding the broken ceramic pieces together using a special lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. This mixture not only creates a visually stunning effect but also forms a strong and durable bond between the fragments. Additionally, the lacquer hardens over time, providing stability and reinforcement to the repaired areas. As a result, the repaired portions of the ceramic object often become stronger than they were before, with the added resilience conferred by the precious metals and the meticulous craftsmanship of the kintsugi artisan.



This technique symbolizes the journey of healing and resilience, emphasizing that scars contribute to the history and uniqueness of an object.
