Kintsugi on ceramics by Yoichi Koga
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.
