In the past, china dishes were so dear to all. Throwing the broken dishes away was not an easy task. People banded (repaired broken parts with a metal wire and a special paste) the broken dishes to save their sweet and beat memories and the history of their family.
In spite of the unpleasant appearance, the broken parts were banded and repaired. If they were precious enough, they were banded so many times. At last it would make china with many cracks and metal wires.
I won’t throw away my china as well. I repair it to be able to use it again. I might need to repair and band it more and more, even if it becomes ugly and rough.
It’s worse it.
