We are having a small cloakroom tiled and have included a 4 set designer design we bought from Turkey some 8 years ago.
Disater has struck as the tiler dropped 2 of the tiles and broke them.
Before I phone SHMO with the bad news, is there any way they can be repaired and used. We have all the broken bits.
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An epoxy adhesive will stick them back together, but it will always show.

The Japanese would possibly repair them using a technique called Kintsugi - basically making a feature of the breaks.

Thanks AJ, I'll take a look at that.
