Dropped and broke my favorite plate I've used for 32 years. You served me well, Bros.

  1. Looks like you're missing a peice of that plate, OP. Might want to make sure the guy in the basement hasn't taken it

  2. Thanks for the kind words everyone. I have so many memories associated with this plate, it's kind of silly to think about. I guess I'll start researching knitsugi. I would be happy to retire the plate intact, on a shelf than in a dump somewhere.

  3. I have a kit from POJ studio I keep meaning to use, it I haven’t smashed anything yet. It’s spendy but looks super cool.

  4. OP Do you ever wonder if the person that designed that plate is seeing this Reddit post and is proud to see their work appreciated with what ever memories you have tied to the plate?

  5. This post is only 20 minutes old and someone else already commented with my first thought. OP definitely needs to do this!

  6. Yeah, I've fixed several plates this way! Don't know if it's technically food safe, but it holds up through the dishwasher and microwave just fine.

  7. The early designs here are quite interesting. Luigis blue hat, bullet bill having skin-coloured arms, small Mario having different proportions. Some of it is also odd for 1989, considering that that was the year SMB3 released, and you’d expect some of these things to be finalized by then.

  8. Yeah they definitely hadn’t ironed out the characters at this point, which is why there was very little consistency from game to instruction manual to tv show to merch to Nintendo power. Someone must have stepped in a few years later and said, ok, time to get these character designs in order.

  9. There's a japanese art form that finds beauty in repairing broken things. I'm sure this can be fixed with something an still be used.

  10. There's one on ebay for forty bucks, maybe an early Christmas present to yourself. Or check back for cheaper ones occasionally

  11. Btw you can buy this for 50$ online just ran accross one with a google search "30 uear old super mario bros plate" (i dont know how to insert a link that would look good, ik its not the same but still

  14. I don’t wanna concern you, but most decorative plates aren’t meant to be eaten off of. Might wanna give the back a quick glance, especially with the way that paint has faded.

  16. 32 years old.. That makes you? I think it's definitely time to move on from the super mario crockery.

  17. This is a technique used to hide minor cracks in otherwise in tact pieces of ceramic. Not for fusing 6 chunks of broken pieces back together.

  18. That really sucks, I remember when my family used to have the McDonald’s plates with the whole gang and we lost those to wear and tear :/

  19. My condolences, I too have an old childhood plate. It’s got a chip, as soon as that happened I propped it up in the cabinet so I still see it often.
