Kintsugi (golden 継 ぎ, “golden joinery”), also known as Kintsukuroi (jo 繕 い, “golden repair”), is a Japanese art of repairing broken or cracked porcelain with a special type of binder often mixed with gold, silver or platinum. The method of repair is a Japanese philosophy that repairs a fracture or rupture as part of respect for the past. One of the theories of the origin of the Kintsugi technique dates back to the time of Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa (15th century) when he sent his broken teapot for repair to China. When it was returned to him remodeled with an ugly metal binder, the Japanese masters decided to find another, more beautiful solution. Not long after, Kintsugi developed which in a short time became highly esteemed. Some even deliberately smashed their dishes (as well as the tray) so that they could remake it with the golden kintsugi technique.
Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba found his inspiration in this technique. He decided to combine modern forms with it. It celebrates and beautifies fine porcelain with gold joints, creating a collection of dishes of charming and unusual shapes. Born in 1976, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts and became one of the most famous and successful Italian designers of the generation. In collaboration with Seletti, simple products breathe creativity, liveliness and artistic “touch”. Make your dining table even more special with Kintsugi!
