Kintsugi – The Art of Scars,Embrace the Flawed!

The Japanese art of Kintsugi teaches that broken objects are not something to hide but to display with pride.

Kintsugi originated in Japan when shogan Ashikaga Yoshimasa sent a damaged tea bowl for repair and it was mended badly, this prompted craftmen to find a more aesthetic way to repair broken china. The traditional Japanese art uses precious metal, liquid gold, liquid silver or laquer dusted with powdered gold – to bring together the pieces of a broken pottery item and at the same time make an item more precious  than it was before. With todays climate of recycling and sustainability,Kintsugi fit in perfectly in the modern world.
