Kintsugi Art, Broken Pottery Gold Repair
Broken ceramics repair using Kintsugi method is to give a new life to pottery that becomes even more beautiful thanks to its repaired scars. This artistic process of Kintsugi art, Japanese in origin, teaches us that broken pottery is something not to dispose of, but to display with joy.
Examples of Our Kintsugi Art Work
Every repaired piece is unique and different because of the random patterns of the broken pieces enhanced by gold or gold effect metal. Below are some examples of Lakeside Pottery Studio's Kintsugi work. We do use real gold application, but most of our work uses "Gold effect" metal powder in place of pure gold leaf or powder applied in the traditional way. Not only is there a large price difference; there is negligible, if any, visual difference between the two methods.
