Methods for repairment

Removal of the marks, spots and scents. If the dish washing liquid is not adequate, we can refire pieces in the kiln. The most adequate temperature for re-firing will be determined by the condition of artwork.
Repair of chips and cracks According to the condition of damage, we may apply lacquer coating as a joining agent or gold coated fillings. A lacquer coated join is suitable for small cracks that are almost invisible to the naked eye, in order to stop the progress of cracking. Gold coated fillings are suited for repairing objects which are totally broken into pieces or missing part of their body.
If it is neccessary, we can perform "Yobitsugi" which is a method of bringing a foreign piece to repair the missing part. This repair method may require an extra charge
Repairs Leakage According to the usage of the piece, we apply different coatings. Possible materials are a flammmable oil based Silicon coating, a Silicon coating exclusively for the tableware and Liquid Ceramics. With careful examination, if the leakage is caused by cracking of some sort, we will proceed with fillings first, then repair the leakage.
