kintsugi

We had a brief thread a while back about using urushi to repair broken ceramics http://www.followingtheironbrush.org/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2135&p=28898&hilit=kintsugi#p28898. Within it, I gave a link to an exhibit of such repairs. Today I came across a .pdf of the exhibit catalog which includes several essay about the craft of kintsugi, including techniques.

I think it's worth placing it here in the Urushi Studio.

The first picture shows my last repair on a self made bowl, in fact it's hiding a defect, the white glaze was too thin on this area showing a brown colo so I removed it and made a repair with lacquer.

The second photo shows:
-my very first kitsugi attemps on top (simple gold color), on a modern bonsai pot made by Tosui shop.
-second on midle with a very large 4x2x1cm filling, it took several months to achieve it, the base is a very old bonsai pot they call this "namban pot", it seems these were rice jar covers, coming from south-east asia.
-third on bottom, on a tosui shop (but not the same tosui) suiban that came damaged.
