I see, you got some patch work. Maybe just me, I think having a polished knob like those Thailand pots would look cool :lol:
8-) Commit and it can be done, haha

Thought I was finished, but not 100% happy with the silver, will add another layer to even out the shine more...

Here’s some preview pics:

Quick interest check: I got a couple of large Qing blue and white porcelain cups where I am thinking to part with a few... I'd say easily 90-100ml usable volume, so a good one pot, one cup affair. I will measure later and take a few snaps of the ones I am willing to part with.

Also got another Kintsugi pot in the works, this one in a rather special clay – Qinghuini, grey clay, 100ml, Qing/ROC period.

I'm curious, how do you plan to handle the spout's lip, @Bok? To an alien in teapot repair, it seems like any patch without further destructive prep work is going to be doomed in the long run. And to state the obvious - a charming piece indeed!

Kintsugi is slow, but it is quite solid, whole missing section can be reconstructed with ease and time. The way it is broken off is not too tricky to repair, I've already started the first steps. You have to imagine there are many layers of sticky lacquer in various alterations that in the sum are pretty hard to destroy afterwards.

Also, we are all doomed in the long run :mrgreen:

Not only that, the clay is a marvel to look at, grey clay is one of my favourites, it is subtle and humble but has a lot of depth.
