Authentic Kintsugi Flat Matcha bowl, Raku black Kyoto ware

$3,000.00

As this Kintsugi piece is one-of-a kind, we can offer only until it has sold.

Product Description

<About Kintsugi Part>
This piece was applied once Kintsugi, but it's broken again, so we applied double Kintsugi. The high value of this piece is due to the skills of both the ceramicist and the 24k gold Kintsugi repair, which was exceptionally difficult due to the badly broken state of the tea bowl.
By applying traditional kintsugi to simple black tea utensils, we have created a unique product with a great impact.

<About the Original Vessel>
All of their Kyoto and Kiyomizu Ware is handmade by professional craftsmen.
During this production process, some pieces are inevitably broken or chipped. Normally, these works are rejected during the inspection process and never seen by their customers. However, the forms of these works and the detailed paintings that adorn them are by no means inferior to those of their whole pieces. To avoid wasting the diligent efforts their craftsmen put into handmaking each piece, they have decided to sell unused pieces that were broken or chipped in our web store after they have been repaired through kintsugi.

<Thoughts Behind the Piece>
The master who created this black tea bowl has already passed away and will never be able to make the same utensil again. Many of tea bowls are mass-produced in the same form, but this one is one-of-a-kind, just like our Kintsugi piece. The original piece was worth about US$1,000. However, when the earthquakes occurred, this piece has been broken. In addition to the hope of recovering from the disaster, we also applied kintsugi to pass on the skills of the deceased masters to the next generations.

May you feel the beauty of the imperfection of Kintsugi.


All materials we use are natural and do not have any risks of toxicity.

The piece comes with a Paulownia box, including care advises and a certificate of origin and quality.

How to care for Kintsugi Piece

  • After use, wash the pieces using a soft sponge and food-safe detergent.
  • Rinse them in lukewarm or cool water and completely dry them using a soft dish cloth.
  • Do not soak them in hot or cold water for long periods of time. This may cause the urushi or maki-e lacquer to peel or fracture.
  • The urushi (Japanese lacquer) may break or the maki-e lacquer decoration may peel off if the piece is dropped or if it collides with other hard objects. Please handle these pieces carefully.
  • Do not place these pieces in the microwave or dishwasher.
