07 November 2012 金継 Kintsugi

Kintsugi (金継ぎ) (Japanese: golden joinery) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with a lacquer resin sprinkled with powdered gold. I had a chance to hear how to do the modern version of it at Kikirakuza and to take a look at the real ones at Ishizaki-san’s place in Mito.

Kikirakuza (they repair ones that are bought at their shop only.)




Thanks to Kikirakuza, Ishizaki-san and Moriyama-san from Art Tower Mito.

31 October 失敗 Mistake

Do you see the mistake I made? I forgot to stick the little one supposed to be in the middle.

A visitor passed by and fixed it for me.
