金継ぎ (kintsugi) or 金繕い (kintsukuroi) is a Japanese craft art of repairing broken ceramics and pottery. I started learning kintsugi in and got obsessed by.

Kintsugi: "It is a practice in Japan where they mend cracked or broken ceramics with gold, rendering the piece even more beautiful than it started out. The idea behind it is not to hide the ugliness and brokenness but instead to use gold to make it shine; to illuminate and expose the damage. And at the end of the process the piece is even more beautiful having been broken." Amen, I say.

仕上げをどうするか、みなさん悩むところ。もちろん、器との相性が大事だけど、懐具合も気になるところ。。。 金継ぎとはいえ、金である必要は全くない。 漆で仕上げても、銀や錫で仕上げても良い。 要は、ちゃんと漆で直してあればどの仕上げでも安全に使えるし、安っぽい仕上げなど一つもない。 ただ、この器のように、「あ、やっぱり金があうね。ご依頼主はちゃんとわかってたね。」と言うモノがあるのも事実。 金の高騰。いい加減にしてほしい。。。 #金継ぎ #銀継ぎ #金繕い #kintsugi  #kintsukuroi  #monotsugi#モノ継ぎ

It happens to us all. Maybe you’re washing the dishes and your hands are slippery with soap. Or maybe you just lost your grip. Either way, there’s now a ceramic plate shattered on the floor. If you’re lucky, there wasn’t any food on it, but breaking a plate, or a bowl, or a mug, is...
