This magnificent Japanese chawan has been restored using the kintsugi technique, a traditional Japanese technique for repairing broken pottery using gold or other precious metals. The chawan is made of white clay and features a smiling face painted on it. The smiling face is a symbol of happiness and joy, and the broken chawan is a reminder that there is always hope, even in the darkest of times.
This chawan will make a statement and add a touch of whimsy to any home. It also makes an excellent gift for anyone who appreciates the beauty of Japanese craftsmanship or the story of human resilience.
It measures 11cm in diameter by 7cm in height, and can be reused for food.
