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.

Interesting twist on the common staple repair: https://kknews.cc/culture/mgv4z49.html
A bit to fancy for my taste, nonetheless quite skillful.

Oh, the antithesis of wabi-sabi modesty and impermanence. Louis XIV would have loved it.
