Kintsugi repair kit : Material and tools

Urujyu’s Kintsugi repair kit

Our kintsugi repair kits with material and tools necessary for kintsugi

“I’d like to share simple and natural Japanese Kintsugi techniques with everyone who loves pottery all over the world”

With this idea,
we’ve made this kit with natural traditional ingredients such as tokusa plant which has been used since ancient times to polish thanks to its rough surface, lacquer extracted from lacquer trees, pure gold and silver, safe for the human body.

This “Kintsugi kit of Urujyu” was born thanks to the interaction with our students of Kintsugi class.
It contains easy-to-use quantities of materials and tools to be used at home with a text and video (“Kintsugi Urujyu” on Youtube)

The Kintsugi repair kit of Urujyu uses only Ki-urushi lacquer, the most natural type of lacquer, made of lacquer sap from which we removed impurities.
To repair broken pottery, we mix earth with lacquer to fill a crack, then put some flour and sawdust in order to refill said broken part.
The ivory-colored lacquer freshly taken from lacquer trees changes to a transparent candy-color in the air. It turns red when naturel pigment such as Bengara is added.

Make your own color from natural lacquer.
This is the Kintsugi, simple and natural, that Urujyu offers to you. We would like to pass on this traditional technology and knowledge about lacquer down to you through our Kintsugi kit.

Like when we sew a button that has fallen off with a needle and thread, the Kintsugi allows us to mend our precious porcelain items when they are broken. We hope that this lifestyle becomes usual. We made this kit keeping this in mind.

We are happy if this kintsugi kit of Urujyu encourages those who would like to start Kintsugi and those who once abandoned it.

Please enjoy Kintsugi with natural ingredients and the moment when human and pottery come together.
