The rich Ameyu glaze looks stunning with the 22k gold kintsugi mend by Tanaka san. The organic variations in the glazes contrast wonderfully with the smooth lustre of the gold. Hand-made and wood-fired in a traditional noborigama climbing kiln and then mended with traditional urushi and gold kintsugi technique.
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.
