Product Description

About the art of Kintsugi 

The Japanese art of kintsugi teaches that broken objects, especially porcelain are not something to hide but to display with pride and we wanted to remind that to everyone.

When a bowl, teapot or precious vase falls and breaks into a thousand pieces, we throw them away angrily and regretfully. Yet there is an alternative, a Japanese practice that highlights and enhances the breaks thus adding value to the broken object. It’s called kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”).

This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time to enhance the breaks. The technique consists of joining fragments of porcelain and giving them a new, more refined aspect. Every repaired piece is unique, because of the randomness with which ceramics shatters and the irregular patterns formed that are enhanced with the use of metals.

When designing Kintsugi contemporary bone tableware, we took inspiration from this ancient Japanese art of pottery repair. By repairing broken ceramics it was possible to give a new lease of life to pottery that could become even more refined thanks to its “scars”.

    Just stunning. I thought they looked amazing on pictures. They are so much more gorgeous in person! I can’t wait for the next products in this series.
    Yes, they are not microwavable, but who microwaves a fine ribeye or sushi?

  2. Silvia Covaggio

    Bought one set for a gift and when it arrived, I just had to buy another one for myself. Worth the price. The effect it makes on our guests is incredible.

  3. John Crosswood

    Superb!

  4. Jessy Hoffman

    Bought two sets for myself and family members. We love this porcelain set and feel almost like framing it and putting it on the wall.
