A taste of ancient Japan in your own home
At Kintsugi Fusion we use the 400 year old art of kintsugi (golden joinery) to produce a range of stylish products with a Japanese aesthetic.
A student of Japanese art, culture, literature, our kintsugi artist Donna trained in modern kintsugi repair and was inspired to set up Kintsugi Fusion. By employing modern techniques and substituting tratitional urushi and 24 carat gold for epoxy resins and gold mica powder, this beautiful medium was made affordable to all. We use genuine kintsugi techniques to repair ceramics - the joinery is not simply painted on.
From vintage plates and bowls to our quirky jewellery, all our pre-loved pieces have been loving repaired with gold so that they can continue their journey in another form.
We combine East with West and old with new to create one-off pieces that can be enjoyed in all their glory, and in celebration of their flaws and imperfections.
“ To become beautiful it had to break.” (Aura Trevortini)
All our products are vintage or pre-loved and have been repaired by hand.
They may have a few scratches, blemishes and marks which have appeared over the course of their history - which is why we love them - as we hope you will.
Every broken piece is cleaned, sanded where necessary, and reassembled bit by bit with epoxy resin and gold mica powder. This process can take several days to complete as each piece must be secure before the next is added.
A happy discovery made while attempting (without success) to piece together a shattered bowl, resulted in the creating of a pendant, and the recycling of an otherwise irreparable bowl. The result was our successful range of jewelley, fashioned with the same care and attention as our larger ceramic pieces
Kintsugi philosphy teaches us to embrace our scars and to wear with pride everything that makes us different and unique.
Every purchase includes an information and care leaflet, and gift card.
