Yixing repair

by gasninja » Nov 25th, '12, 11:53

So recently three of my shui ping pots fell victim to a falling piece of glass art. Two of them where from the 80,s possibly earlier the other from the 90s. I had recently read the post on kintsugi at Listening to leaves. I am curious if any one knows anything about the process, an artist that practices that technique or had any experience with the kits mentioned in the post?


I am not really overly concerned with the appearance.I really would just like the pots to be functional again in a way that won't effect the pots performance, the taste of the tea or release anything toxic into my tea.

No wonder why you took that much effort to fix that pot: it is a very nice one and the bell shape is another classic winning design:
