The art of repairing

In Japan, there is a traditional repair method known as kintsugi, where broken pieces of pottery are stuck back together with a Japanese lacquer (urushi), the joints are painted and decorated with gold or silver powder, and the pottery continues to be used.

Or you can buy this one at Neiman's for $775.00 LOL

How interesting and clever of those Japanese. Now I'm sorry I unknowingly just threw away pottery pieces that got broken. I just might have attempted this... Live and learn.
