Product Description

<About Kintsugi Part>
This vessel was broken during the earthquake. In order to create a new sustainable value, Mr. Suginaka, an urushi (Japanese lacquer) Meister, repaired and upcycled this vessel using Kintsugi, a unique Japanese ware repair method.
After carefully joining the broken part using urushi, the 24-karat gold powder was sprinkled to decorate the joined parts. For this piece, we applied a Kintsugi as simple as possible to match the original appearance of the vessel, as in traditional Kintsugi pieces.

<About the Original Vessel>
The bowls imported from Korea were generally called "Korai bowls" and the Ido bowl was reputed an invaluable one among them which was highly valued in the tea ceremony during the Edo period.

Ido bowls are mysterious vessels, and while some pieces have been designated national treasures in Japan, the Korean kiln has not been identified, and no similar vessels have been found in Korea today. This is a reproduction of such Ido tea bowl.

During frequent earthquakes in Japan, some pieces are inevitably broken or chipped. Normally, these works are rejected during the inspection process and never seen by their customers To avoid wasting the diligent efforts their craftsmen put into handmaking each piece, we decided to revive them as new Kintsugi pieces.

<Thoughts Behind the Piece>
Ido tea bowls are considered to be simple living vessels that originated in the ancient Koryo Dynasty.
However, when they were imported to Japan, they were treated as fine tea ceremony utensils, in perfect harmony with the Wabi-Sabi philosophy. Kintsugi itself is also a technique created based on the Wabi-Sabi philosophy, making it an especially good match for these kinds of vessels and the Kintsugi. We invite you to experience the world of Wabi-Sabi.

Why don't you spend a wonderful time with one-of-a-kind Kintsugi ware?

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 paper 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.
