kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold
New kintsugi is a new way of gluing porcelain based on the old kintsugi technique. The story goes that kintsugi may have originated when in the late 15th century the emperor sent his damaged pottery back to China for repairs. When it returned repaired with metal staples, he ordered his craftsmen to come up with something more aesthetic, kintsugi (gold repair). This art became such a hype that some collectors deliberately started smashing valuable pottery so it could be repaired with the gold seams of kintsugi.
The art of embracing damage. With New kintsugi we combine this lovely old technique with new technology. By messy mending you emphasise the marks and scars of a product giving it a new perspective and beauty while offer it longevity.

Let us create and treasure the beauty of imperfection.
Can I use it after repairing?
We suggest to whait for at least 48 hours after repairing for the glue to damp.
We use it all the time our selfs till 100 degree celsius but as you repair it yourself I'm afraid that we can not be held responsible for any damage coused.
Please handle with care and wash by hand ;-)
