Old Craftsmanship for One Thousand Years

From Ancient Times to the Present

Breaking can also be round. The skill of ceramic repairing is available both in ancient and modern times.
Ceramic repair, which originated in the Song Dynasty, can also be presented  the figure of the craftsman in the Qingming River. Originally it was the cherished feeling of breaking the bowl. In the Qing Dynasty, there were rich people who liked the beauty of such nails. They would specially put the beans into the teapot and water them to expand the clay pots. According to the crack and the material of the rivets, the craftsmen give an interpretation of the artistic value.
Ceramic repair is called "Jin Ji (Jin Hao)" in Japan. Because of the addition of gold powder, this handicraft will present a golden grain in the crack. It is a very fine handcrafting technique. It can repair the broken bowl. After the 311 earthquake, the demand of Jin Ji  has increased greatly. The  public can even easily buy materials for home DIY, which allows the public to rehabilitate the bowl porcelain in their own hands.

Jiangxi. People use the ship to transport it not only to all parts of China, but also to Europe even the farthest corners. They are cherished by those who appreciate the elegance of the banquet. This porcelain can also withstand the heat of hot food without breaking. It is especially amazing that
breaking can also be round. If a porcelain is broken, craftsman just weld with copper wire. And then soup will not leak from the porcelain.』 It is obvious that not only Chinese people cherish the ceramics utensils, but even Westerners are fascinated by its unique charm and style.
