NEW KINTSUGI REPAIR KIT ⋅ HUMADE ⋅ 2016    

 

New Kintsugi* repair kit is a DIY kit that helps the end user repairing objects, by simulating the ancient Japanese technique, named Kinsugi, that consists in repairing (mainly ceramic) objects with gold. This technique, and the kit itself, underlines the aesthetic value of cracks and repair interventions done in our daily objects. The kit provides glue and golden coloured powder, here a video that explains how to use the kit.

 

This aesthetic approach, discussed also in a separate post (link) is defined as Wabi Sabi that sees beauty in incomplete, imperfect, humble and impermanent things.
