Announcement   Our Kintsugi Kintsukuroi are handmade. We mend & enhance them with glue & gold. Like life, this makes the piece stronger & more beautiful for being broken.

Some bowls have small holes in them where the break was the strongest. A great poet named Rumi once said, "The wound is the place where the light enters you". The strongest break results in a hole, where the light can shine through.

Items will be shipped in 1-3 business days

About

Kintsugi Kinsukuroi Bowls and Broken Ceramic Repair - More Beautiful for Being Broken

We have been chosen as the premiere resource for Kintsugi repair and demonstration including:

Our stunning red bowl featured in Us Weekly magazine

Demonstrating Kintsugi for InterVarsity Press video "Mending the Divides"

Providing cover art for the book "Mindfulness Skills for Trauma and PTSD"

Telling our story to global publication One World News - "Art of Broken Pieces"

Starring in a youth group lesson video for AWANA - "Life involves painful experiences that instructs us."

The Japanese art of Kintsugi, or Kintsukuroi, repairs broken pottery with seams of gold. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. At Kintsugi Gifts, we gather old, broken and sometimes forgotten ceramics and pottery to create pieces of art.

Each Kintsugi Gift is handmade. We gather old, broken and sometimes given away ceramics and pottery to create pieces of art.

Our Process

This first healing spot is always near the base, which is the strongest piece left after being broken.

Just like the ancient Japanese ceramic repair tradition, we carefully stand the largest broken piece in sand. Piece by piece we mend the ceramic and allow to dry. This time consuming process is critical and necessary for proper binding.

After all the pieces are in place, we accentuate the cracks and smooth them out. The final step is to fill the seams with gold flaked paint. Just like the human race, no two are alike.

The Story of Kintsugi

Included in your shipment is the story of Kintsugi, printed on an elegant card. Keep it next to your piece of art or use it as a display mat. When someone asks about your Kintsugi Gift, read them the story.

We Try to Give Back

10% of our profits are given to the Wounded Warrior Project. Please consider donating and supporting our men and women when they come home.
