New Kintsugi* repair kit *(An old Japanese art of fixing broken ceramics with gold)


Store:  Tropenmuseum

‘New Kintsugi’ is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the old kintsugi technique. 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.

With the ‘New kintsugi repair kit’ Humade combines this lovely old technique with new technology. By messy mending you emphasise the marks and scars of a product giving it a new perspective and beauty while offer it longevity.

Let us create and treasure the beauty of imperfection.

Can I use it after repairing?

We suggest to wait for at least 48 hours after repairing to let the glue set.

We use it our selfs till 100 degree celsius but as you repair it yourself I’m afraid that we can not be held responsible for any damage caused.

Please handle with care and wash by hand
