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.
