AozoraE I’ve seen antique Kintsugi pieces, it is not meant to be doused in hot water on a daily basis :)

You can’t do partial cap, normally the hole tip will be covered. I had it done in China. Not aware of any western shop offering this.
Thanks for the advice Bok

Guess that means the pot will have to go into a temporary retirement until I can come across someone who can do that kind of work. A bit disappointed that there isn't really any other way to fix it but I guess I shouldn't have expected a perfect fix for a break like this anyway.

All I can do for now is make sure this kind of thing doesn't become a habit I suppose :lol:

@AozoraE I would try and see if one your local jewelleries is up to the task! A lot of those who offer this service in China do actually come from that trade.
