Kintsugi Repair

Did your favourite piece of pottery or ceramics (including china/porcelain) get broken?
I can fix that.

Contact me and I’ll email back so you can send me photos.

Is your broken ceramic mug in two or three (or more) pieces? I can put it back together for you.

Contact me and I’ll email back so you can send me photos.

I offer five types of pottery repairs:

  • Clear repair
  • Repair with dark grey glue
  • The golden art of kintsugi
  • True kintsugi (kintsukuroi)
  • and less-expensive faux-kintsugi (you probably can’t tell the difference!)

(Read about each type here.)

(I do not use super glue to repair pottery. Find out why.)

It’s fantastic! I honestly can’t see where it cracked. Thank you so much 🙂

The Golden Art of Kintsugi Pottery Repair

I can even use the Japanese art of Kintsugi to repair your broken pottery/ceramic (including china/porcelain) bowl or mug or vase. (It’s not overly expensive.) Kintsugi highlights the crack with gold mica like in the picture of the blue/green jug, making your kintsugi pottery piece one of a kind. (You can opt for kintsugi on either display pottery or cold food pottery or hot food pottery such as a mug.) Kintsugi is my favourite!

But as mentioned, I offer two other types of repairs besides kintsugi:
a clear seal and a dark grey seal that can take heat. Check out my 5 Types of Pottery Repair for more information.

Just contact me and we can discuss options and prices.

Listen to RNZ’s Lynn Freeman interviewing me about pottery repair:

NOTE:

A pottery repair will often cost more than the original piece. So unless the original is rare, has sentimental value or is otherwise irreplaceable, it may be less costly to simply buy a new one.

Even so, please fee free to contact me so we can discuss options and prices.

I love the way the gold looks with the blue!

 
 

Even if you don’t live in Wellington, I can repair your ceramics (including china/porcelain). Shipping is not expensive, and I’ve never had any damage either coming or going. Just contact me and we can discuss options and prices.

And if you have a glass item, let me know. I’ve been successful repairing glass items a few times and enjoy the challenge.

Really happy with the repair job on my German stein that Dave did for me. This was something I picked up from my overseas travel prior to having kids and so I was devastated to break it. The repair job is super strong and I’m stoked to have my stein back – thank you Dave!
