Caution: Urushi Lacquer is made from tree sap and it has been used for 9,000 years by Japanese lacquer masters as a glue, putty, or paint. Although Urushi contains a compound that can cause a reaction similar to poison ivy, proper handling (gloves and long-sleeved shirt), and working in a well-ventilated area will generally prevent an allergic reaction. Mejiro Co. will not assume any liability for adverse reactions to Urushi Lacquer.

  • If You Can Break It, We Can Fix It!

    Kintsugi (or Kintsukuroi) is the Japanese art of using urushi lacquer, mixed with genuine gold to repair broken pottery and porcelain. The philosophy behind this technique is to treat the repair as part of the object’s history as opposed to treating the repair as something to hide as if it never happened. The resulting repaired pottery will be both visually appealing and durable as well.

    For your daily use platewares and precious broken items, you should use genuine gold!

    *Urushi lacquer is heatproof up to 100 to 120 Celsius. 

    *Kit items are fixed, no change is accepted.
