Kintsugi or “golden repair” is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with gold silver or platinum. It is not only an art, it is a philosophy. It treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise or discard.
We just loved this idea and how beautiful these “broken” pieces looked after this very simple repair.
In the past we tried to repair if we could get an item to look perfect like it never incurred this mishap/damage. Most of the time, sad to say now, we threw the piece away. Never again!
E6000 is a bonding agent we use often in our DIY project and we can’t tell you how delighted we were when we found it in a metallic.
We had so much fun and just loved how beautiful these pieces turned out, we almost considered breaking a few things on purpose. No worries, we didn’t. But don’t you just love this idea. “No attempt to hide the damage- rather the repair is illuminated.”
