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.

Hello hello :)

This forum has so much to offer... it's insane. Every topic I read makes me want to read more about other topics. :D

This cornstarch trick is really awesome. But should we be worried about bacterial growth? Starch breaks down quite easily and as it does wont the bacterial waste products affect the flavor of the Tea?

Has not killed me ... yet. :mrgreen:

In the case of Hagi, so much tea and whatever else seeps into the cracks.
