This may be an odd request, but does anyone know artisans who sell chawans or yunomi repaired with the kintsugi technique?
I wanted to gift one to a friend for a special occasion, but I don't have enough time (not to mention the stomach) to find a nice chawan, break it, and have it repaired.

You might want to change the description of your topic to: wanted for sale, confusing otherwise...

I would guess that any of the frequently mentioned Kintsugi repair people will have additional pieces for sale? Possibly an expensive gift though.

You may want to check the Etsy shop of « Japanese » potter Michael Martino who makes beautiful pieces and when they show firing cracks treats them with kintsugi:

Or you can look on French kintsugi artisan Miryam Greff, she has a black kintsugied chawan at the moment:

Ooh, some lovely pieces there! Good thing I have a limited budget, otherwise I would buy one for myself as well.

Also, thank you pedant and bok. I realised late in the night that the title could be confusing. :D
