Traditional kintsugi, reconstruction, 3 basic steps.

This video has no audio. It is 3 short videos put together without any editing. The transitions between the videos are at 3 minutes, 12 seconds and then at 7 minutes, 19 seconds.
This is a Ming period large plate. It has a couple of areas I am working on to repair in traditional kintsugi.
One of the areas has had a fitted wood insert put in. Whoever put it in didn’t pay attention to the fluting on the outer edge of the rim. The video shows the first couple of steps of defining the edge, making a form, transition at 3 minutes, 12 seconds, and then cutting the wood insert, transition at 7 minutes, 19 seconds.

Kintsugi, more disassembling

Here are some more pieces I disassembled and one I couldn’t get apart. One of the pieces is a Ming period celadon, 45cm. diameter plate with an interesting wood repair piece. The piece I couldn’t get apart is the Oribe suribachi. I tried twice applying heat to it for a total of 30 minutes but I guess the walls are so thick that the epoxy doesn’t weaken easily.

Bonjour,

Les 3 jours de workshop sur le kintsugi étaient intenses, magiques et fabuleux!
On a pu découvrir le travail avec la laque (ça ne sent pas bon du tout!), la pose de l’argent (ou l’or), et on a appris la patience, la patience, la patience….(si ça s’apprend….)

C’était tellement bien qu’ on remet ça, en août!

Vous êtes intéressé? Alors toutes les informations sont sur mon site: vmaoo.ch
et pour les inscriptions:
3 heures d’initiation
3 jours de workshop
10 jours de workshop

Merci de partager, de diffuser, d’envoyer!
Bonne journée
Véronique
