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.
This video shows me taking apart an Edo period Shigaraki large vase that had been dropped and then poorly glued back together. Who ever did that then tried to hide the repair with filling it with wood and burning that out. I will repair it with traditional, lacquer based kintsugi.
This is the first of two videos to apply #5 gold to practice on for an upcoming kintsugi workshop in Switzerland.
Here are some photos of metal with the first coat of lacquer, just before application of the second layer.
This video shows the second application of #3 grind gold to a patterned area. The lacquer that will adhere the gold is a clear one, not red.
To watch the first application see
The first 7 minutes of this video show sanding of middle coat of lacquer. From about minute 7 or so to the end show step 3 on this page, http://www.kintugi.com/?page_id=225
Here is a small thing on me. The part with me starts at about 31:00 minutes.
