  • "Through this project, I am interested in how we can utilise Tonglings industrially produced minerals and metals to create valuable craft artifacts which have deep meaning to the local people that once again celebrate Tonglingâ’s rich cultural heritage and preserve it for future generations. "
  • Like many inventions the story of Crystals started by chance: wanting to repair a favorite teapot Lukas Wegwerth started researches and was inspired by the Japanese method Kintsugi of applying gold dust in the glue to purposely reveal the fissures in a broken vessel.
