About Kintsugi
‘Kintsugi’ literary means gold (金 KIN) stitching (つぎ TSUGI) in Japanese. It is a Japanese art form of mending broken porcelain with lacquer (URUSHI), dusted with gold, or silver. This mending method of broken pottery with lacquer has been traced way back to the prehistoric time. With Kintsugi, the broken object gets transformed into a unique piece of art. The broken part is truly accepted and cherished as a history of the object, a form of art, rather than getting disguised with immaculate repairing. It has become more beautiful than ever. It is only one in the world, one in history. Japanese Kintsugi is not only just mending our broken objects with gold, but it has more profound meaning and teaching to our attitude towards life.
