We also specialise in Kintsugi ceramic repairs. Kintsugi, meaning Golden Joinery in Japanese, is the art of repairing cracked or broken pottery with Gold or Silver.

Kintsugi philosophy: if an object has been damaged it has more of a history and should therefore be celebrated and highlighted, rather than hidden or discarded. From きん (kin, “gold”) +  (tsugi, “repairing, mending; joining”).
