Why a Kintsugi Gallery?

A lot of kintsugi pieces in the market use make-shift and artificial material.   We feel that authenticity, information about the work and the maker are all important for those who really appreciate this rare craft.  We want to give our audience access to quality and authentic pieces.    In Japan, we work with a network of Japanese artisans that practice kintsugi in its authentic and traditional method.

No epoxy, super glue, fake gold or artificial gold paint.  Authentic kintsugi process is very tedious and we take no short-cut. Japan's artisan takes pride in maintaining traditional material knowledge and techniques, it is a lifetime of learning and devotion.

Commitment

Respecting this craft and wabisabi, we only showcase works repaired with authentic method.

  • We do not break a new pottery and repair it to create inventory.  Each piece comes with history and story.

  • We do not forge imperfection. All blemishes, imperfection you see is of the vessel's original state from the maker or from aging. 

 

Writing from the perspective of artisans, peer through fancy packaging and romanticized philosophy about Kinstugi.  Be educated from the resource represented by Japan artisans to truly appreciate this craft.

Thank you for visiting and supporting Mr. Koga!  We will be back with more kintsugi features in the coming months.  Stay tuned.
