The beauty in broken


Kintsukuroi is the age-old Japanese art of repairing pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold or silver, and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. So why throw that beloved plate away simply because it’s chipped or broken when you can give it a Midas touch instead?

And it’s not so hard to do with the New Kintsugi Repair Kit by Humade. Simply use the gold (or silver) adhesive to fix the cracks or breaks, and it doesn’t even matter if you’re a little sloppy as it all adds to the fixed piece’s new charm.
