Kintsugi(Kintsukuroi) is a technique to repair earthen/china-wares by utilizing adhesive characteristics of Urushi lacquers. It is said Kintsugi(Kintsukuroi) has first developed in the Muromachi period (1338 ~ 1573) when Tea ceremony had become very popular. However, we can go back even to the Jomon period (B.C.13,000 ~ B.C.3,000) when it comes to using Urushi lacquer to repair things. We have a tradition to "nurture wares" since ancient times.
