maybe worth a separate thread if a bunch of names come in for future reference for others, but I'll try here first...

can anyone recommend any kintsugi/repair artists? Preferably in Europe, but I'm also happy to ship the pieces to get a quality repair from someone with experience. Looking for someone who does a proper job- no epoxy with gold flakes business, I'm around nasty chemicals like that enough and I don't want it near my tea. I know of one person in Berlin but they currently aren't taking on new jobs it seems.

In NYC, Nissan Haque is well considered for kintsugi repair ;

Also in NYC is Gen Saratani: https://www.urushi.info/kintsugi

Gen also does restoration work for lacquer ware and teaches kintsugi workshops, too.

FWIW, I would probably contact Nissan first for any kintsugi work I wanted done.

And in France:

(Be careful, I saw other addresses in France offering workshops actually using epoxy)

Thank you pedant for the suggestion. This morning I jb welded a hairline crack on a thin gaiwan I have. The gaiwan is the best handling gaiwan I've found but because it's so thin I've already had one break on me from regular use. Pedant suggested I jb weld just the outside to reinforce it, so here it is. Some people have said it looks artistic, but I just spread it on with a chopstick, tried to make it look somewhat decent.

Natsuyo Watanabe is in Berlin. I have had two Yixing Pots repaired there - she did a stellar job. One has to wait however for some time, until she gets to it, and then for the drying time. But it is well worth the wait.
