A CERAMIC REPAIR TECHNIC SINKING INTO OBLIVION: RIVET
The fragile structure of the ceramic material that leads to broken ceramics in daily use, led humans to repair these objects over time. Before the use of synthetic adhesives that emerged with technological advances, metal rivets, bonds and other metal-based repair methods were among the most reliable and prevalent ceramic repair methods.
In the present study, the history of the rivet technique used in ceramic repair, the tools, material and processes commonly used in the 19th and 20th centuries during the development of this technique were investigated.
