Our company history
Kintsugi Australia was established in 2018 by Jun Morooka.
About JUN Morooka
He came across the art of Kintsugi when he watched the Japanese TV. At that time many plates were broken in his restaurant, and he thought that Kintsugi was a good method to repair them !
During his self studying of Kintsugi, he was also fascinated by philosophy of Kintsugi !
An object is sometimes broken. however, this is part of its life, and rather than throw it away it can be repaired and the cracks remain to show its history. We can repair not only broken objects, but also deep sorrow, broken heart, relationship, our health by something else. Kintsugi is just like our life, exactly the same !
He bought a Kintsugi-kit online and tried to do it by himself, but the result was not satisfy enough. He looked for Kintsugi master in Australia but couldn’t find any, then decided to go to Japan to learn it.
He went Japan 2-3 times a year. He began leaning Kintsugi seriously start in 2015.
Jun sold his restaurant in 2017 and flew to Japan to pursue the art of Kintsugi for one year. He has been studying under 5 different Masters of Kintsugi across Japan since 2015.
Interestingly, each master has a different approach and using slightly different technique. He also found that he couldn’t get materials here in Australia. Some materials Jun put them together, studied and established his own method.
In 2018, he founded Kintsugi Australia to spread the knowledge beauty of Kintsugi to Aussies and the world.
