Product Description

<About Kintsugi Parts>
Since the original vessel was broken into pieces, the broken parts were carefully joined using only urushi (Japanese natural lacquer), and then more urushi was applied to increase the strength of the entire vessel.
In addition to repairing using the traditional Kintsugi technique, gold leaf is applied to the uneven surface created by the urushi, and then different color urushi is applied.
This allows to create a shiny, three-dimensional and gorgeous Kintsugi piece.

<About the Original Vessel>
An antique store owner purchased this tea utensil about 30 years ago.
The details of the potter are unknown, but it is in the form of Raku ware and was broken into pieces when we purchased it.

<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.
By expressing the lava of the black earth with Kintsugi and urushi, we created this Kintsugi piece so that those who use can feel the strength of nature at hand.

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 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.
