Before Lotte Dekker: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. After Lotte Dekker: “Break it then put it back together nicer!” Inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi where broken pottery is mended back together using gold-infused glue, Lotte Dekker has taken a modern approach to the tradition “repair art” with her Kintsugi-style repair kits. Containing bison glue and gold powder, the kit encourages both artists and non-artists alike to experiment with the technique of creating something new and authentic out of something originally complete and whole.

Damage doesn’t have to entail disaster, rather it can be an opportunity for renovation and improvement. Not intended to piece back together a family heirloom, Lotte Dekker’s Kintsugi repair kit provides you with a fun and engaging opportunity to create something that is truly one-of-a-kind.
