Kintsugi (金継ぎ - gold joinery) is a ceramic repair technique in which chips, cracks, and broken pieces are repaired with urushi lacquer, which is either mixed or dusted with precious metal powder, typically gold or silver. Rather than hiding the damage, the use of precious metals highlights the flaws, which tells the story of the item’s wear and repair over time, expressing an acceptance of the transient and imperfect nature of being.

PLEASE NOTE: Raw urushi lacquer is an extreme skin irritant. Please use the provided gloves, follow all instructions carefully, and avoid letting the raw urushi touch skin. Tezumi is not liable for any adverse reactions caused by urushi.

We've partnered with POJ to make this kit available in the USA, however we are not experts in the craft. A link to POJ's instructional videos will be available for guidance.

This product is final sale and we do not accept returns or exchanges.
