This blue glazed terracotta bowl with “hare’s fur” texture was made in France by an artisan potter.
The red clay is coated with a high-gloss glaze.
It’s a hatazori-gata bowl: the lip is curved.
Cracked but not broken, I restored it using traditional Japanese lacquer, called Urushi, and 24-carat gold. I call this technique Kintsugi Chinkin-bori, which is originally a lacquer incision technique.
You can reuse this bowl to drink your favorite tea, or simply keep it as an object to admire.
It measures 15 cm in diameter and 7,5 cm in height, and is truly unique.
Myriam’s opinion: The Kintsugi chinkin-bori allows you to acquire an absolutely beautiful bowl, but at a more affordable price.
