Why hide the cracks when you can make them beautiful?

From The Netherlands (home of ceramic delftware) comes this innovative product. With the New Kintsugi Repair Kit, you not only get to salvage that beloved chipped or broken ceramic plate, but you also get to reinvigorate it with this gorgeous gold filler. The ancient Japanese art of kintsugi, which means “golden joinery”, is all about turning ugly breaks into beautiful fixes - proposing that repair can make things better than new.
