Kintsugi Yanase Kobo Sushi Plate


The original plate was handmade by Yanase san at his kiln, but it was unfortunately broken on the way back to the UK. So it was handed over to Tanaka san to work his magic. The rough white glaze makes a beautiful contrast with the smooth lustre of the 22k gold.

The faint yellow tint along the mend is where the traditional lacquer glue has seeped into the glaze, giving a fantastic halo effect, as if the kintsugi is glowing.
