Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken items by mending the areas of breakage with urushi lacquer followed by dusting with powdered gold.
This Kit allows you to repair a chipped or broken plate together with our master classes (see below). For those with more experience we recommend our advanced Kit that will allow for repairs of items with missing fragments.
While urushi can cause skin irritation in its raw, wet state, once it has completely cured and hardened, it is absolutely food safe. Urushi is one of the most durable natural materials and thus extremely well-suited for environmentally-responsible, long-lasting repair of ceramics, porcelain, and other wares.
I will be aware of my surroundings. If I accidentally come in contact with urushi, I will massage the affected area well with any plant-based oil straight away to remove urushi from my skin. I understand that POJ Studio is not liable for any adverse reactions caused by urushi.
