The vivid greens of our “Aonamako” bowls look great with a 22k gold kintsugi mend. We had a box of these bowls in the middle of a pallet and somehow they were the only things that broke in the shipment. Luckily, they broke well and Tanaka san has done a beautiful job mending them.
Kyoto Kinsetsu Kintsugi
We first met Tanaka san when we sent one of our own tea bowls to him for mending, and he did such a great job that we saved up all our broken items for him to mend!
A Kyoto native, he has a great network of friends and has introduced us to several interesting antique dealers in Kyoto, as well as the Crazy Ken Band.
