I have an amazing blue and brown glazed clay kyusu which has two cracks; one near the top which leaks profusely, but a smaller one near the base which is a slow leaker and am wondering if it could work. I only use it for whites and pouchong, as the opening is wide.
It would be incredible to find someone who did the gold fix.

I heard the Japanese will do a rice starch treatment. I guess other starches might work as well.

Good luck!

Ah rats, I just found this thread. My wife has an ugly coffee mug that leaks. I was close to convincing her to throw it out, but now I see I have to fix it.
