Artisan at work: Repairing ceramics with kintsugi

Anita Cerrato will be working live in Sala degli Arazzi, showcasing the ancient Japanese art of kintsugi. Anita will restore some ceramic objects with mugi urushi (urushi lacquer and flour), grout them with a clay powder (tonoko), and finally gild them with pure gold dust. After each step, the ceramics will be placed in the "muro", a wooden box with controlled temperature and humidity.
