The Ancient Art of Kintsugi: a “Golden Rejoining”
In Japanese, it means “Golden Rejoining,” and the ancient art of kintsugi is all about highlighting—rather than hiding—an object’s flaws. In the process, broken pots, vases, plates and bowls become beautiful instead of unsightly. This is a prominent theme in the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which is all about acknowledging flaws, embracing imperfections and revering authenticity. Want to give it a try?
