Description

When designing Kintsugi premium bone tableware, we took the inspiration from an ancient Japanese art of pottery repair.
By repairing broken ceramics it was possible to give a new lease of life to pottery that could become even more refined thanks to its “scars”. The Japanese art of kintsugi teaches that broken objects are not something to hide but to display with pride and we wanted to remind that to everyone.

When a bowl, teapot or precious vase falls and breaks into a thousand pieces, we throw them away angrily and regretfully. Yet there is an alternative, a Japanese practice that highlights and enhances the breaks thus adding value to the broken object. It’s called kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”).

This traditional Japanese art uses a precious metal – liquid gold, liquid silver or lacquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time enhance the breaks. The technique consists in joining fragments and giving them a new, more refined aspect. Every repaired piece is unique, because of the randomness with which ceramics shatters and the irregular patterns formed that are enhanced with the use of metals.

The kintsugi technique suggests many things. We shouldn’t throw away broken objects. When an object breaks, it doesn’t mean that it is no more useful. Its breakages can become valuable. We should try to repair things because sometimes in doing so we obtain more valuable objects. This is the essence of resilience. Each of us should look for a way to cope with traumatic events in a positive way, learn from negative experiences, take the best from them and convince ourselves that exactly these experiences make each person unique, precious.

    Just stunning. I thought they looked amazing on pictures. They are so much more gorgeous in person! I can’t wait for the next products in this series.
    Yes, they are not microwavable, but who microwaves a fine ribeye or sushi?

    Bought one set for a gift and when it arrived, I just had to buy another one for myself. Worth the price. The effect it makes on our guests is incredible.
