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 of joining fragments and giving them a new, more refined aspect. As such the mended cracks symbolise an event in the life of an object, which, rather than causes its destruction have contributed to unique beauty. An authentic process that uses only traditional materials and techniques.
