Inventive repairs at the Grand Palace, Bangkok

This past December, Mark and I took a trip to Bangkok, Cambodia, and Laos, in search of regional culture and delicious food, but not necessarily in that order. While walking the grounds of the Grand Palace in Bangkok, I stumbled upon several large ceramic planters, each with large metal staple repairs and banding wires. I imagine only I, and the fine readers of this blog, would have noticed these make-do’s hiding in plain sight.

    Good for them! Aside from any value, far too useful to be chucked!

    Good for the government to do this work. Why would they get rid of such beautiful pots because of a simple crack. I have done similar repairs to some of my more expensive clay pots. You do not throw away a Guy Wolfe pot just because of a crack.
