このツアー/アクティビティについて

Kintsugi is a simple restoration technique that uses gold or other metal powder to repair broken, chipped, or cracked pieces. Kintsugi has been handed down in Japan from ancient times, and the culture of taking good care of things has attracted attention worldwide.

Kintsugi restores broken or chipped ceramics and lacquerware by joining them with lacquer. Lacquer comes from the poison oak tree or black tree of the poison ivy family. When dried, lacquer is a natural adhesive that is harmless to the human body and has a hardening effect.

Using a vessel made by Nakano Taku-sensei, a master of Kintsugi, he will teach you how to Kintsugi using traditional and authentic materials. Join us for a special lesson using genuine lacquer and pure gold powder!

Cracks are considered a landscape in Kintsugi, and the joint is decorated with gold, silver, or other metal powder. Kintsugi is based on not pretending that the scratches have never existed but considering them as part of the item's history and breathing new life into it.

*********************************************

Who is Taku Nakano?

Taku Nakano is a unique ceramist running pottery classes at his Omotesando Studio in Tokyo, where it’s known as the epicenter of fashion. His artistic view of the world has been put into his creations, and he has made ceramics that nobody has ever seen. His atelier is filled with unique traditional crafts created by

Taku Nakano, and attracting global attention.

He has sublimated his distinct sense and techniques using rare materials, colored slips, luster, and RETSU with motifs of mysterious universes and planets into his creations. Every piece of his art has its originalities since he opposes mass production.

He has a rare personal history. Nevertheless, he isn’t either from a potter’s family or has a master of pottery. The pottery inspired him in Shizuoka, where he was transferred as an office worker and started his creative activities self-

taught. He started his life as a potter at the age of 36.

More than two thousand people, including celebrities, have supported his unlimited style, not bound by tradition, formality, flexible imagination, and established technique. He believes that social contribution through ceramics is his mission. Therefore he has been doing charity workshops to support needy children rather than doing pottery classes.

His motto: Even more beautiful and more robust than before it broke!
