Color of abundance #10: Plate repaired by Kintsugi

HK$600

It is regrettable to have damaged and broken tableware but the Japanese do not throw them away. As early as late 15th century, Japanese already invented kintsugi, an art of repairing pottery by using powdered gold to fill in the cracks on the ware.The process, which is very complicated, can take up to several months to complete. However, the ware after repair turns even more elegant and invaluable than when it was in perfection condition.

Note: single item

損壞的食器令人感到可惜,然而日本人卻不易將之丟棄。早於十五世紀末,日本人發明了金繼這種針對陶瓷器的修補術,使用金粉填補器皿的裂縫,其工序相當繁複,可以花上數個月時間完成。然而最後的修膳效果,卻比它仍完好無缺的狀態要來得優雅、矜貴。
