Repair with gold

Repair with gold

"Kintsukuroi" is to repair with gold, the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer understanding that the piece is beautiful for having been broken.

When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandise the damage by filling the cracks with gold.

They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. Such a lovely concept.

Certainly can teach us about feeling flawed.

Thanks for reading. Shaun
