New Kintsugi repair kit van Humade
€27,00 incl. BTW / VAT
‘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 crafts men 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 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.
