Kintsugi (金継ぎ) is the Japanese art of Kintsukuroi, which repairs broken pottery with seams of gold. This process emphasizes the seams where the ceramic was once broken, and creates a new type of beauty. The ceramic pieces used in our collection are traced with ebbing gold, suspending the pieces in warm hues on the body.. Our lives are can be broken, but we persevere something from these broken moments, and mend our lives to be stronger, filled with beautiful golden light.
