Yixing Inventory #23: Ghetto kintsugi

March 23, 2021 · 1 Comment

This is one of those pots I bought already broken. There’s some light carving on the side with words. The lacquer is bulging out – I suppose I could try sanding it down, which would probably make it look better than it does at the moment. It seems like the entire front was smashed into a few pieces and glued back together. It was a traumatic event. 95ml.

    Obviously not the work of a kintsugi master…, but a nice looking pot nonetheless. Maybe it could be fixed? Did they use lacquer or epoxy?
