Product Description

<About Kintsugi Parts>
Blue Ko-Imari goes well not only with gold, but also with silver. In this vessel, we used pure silver powder for Kintsugi and then finally coated with urushi (Japanese natural lacquer) to prevent the silver from oxidizing and turning black. In addition to repairing the cracked and chipped areas with traditional kintsugi, we have also drawn kintsugi patterns on some other unbroken parts to create a dynamic kintsugi piece.

<About the Original Vessel>
This vessel was made over 150 years ago. Vessels made in Saga Prefecture in Kyushu, on the western edge of Japan, are called Imari ware.
Vessels made after 1600, during what is called the Edo era in Japan (the last period ruled by samurai), are called Ko-Imari (old Imari ware), and are popular as simple living vessels.
Originally, this vessel was made for drinking a cup of tea, but it is just the right size to be used as a soup cup as well.

<Thoughts Behind the Piece>
We aim to create a sustainable, yet luxurious pieces by reviving the thoughts and times of all the artisans involved in the creation of this fine vessel through kintsugi.
The design of the phoenix has long been a symbol of congratulations and nobility, and we created this Kintsugi piece with the hope that it will bring good luck to those who use it.

May you feel a beauty of the imperfection in 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, a giveaway, 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.
