When something in our house breaks, our first reaction is to get upset and throw it away because for us it’s no longer useful and it has now lost its value. Yet in reality, there is an alternative way of doing this and that is Kintsugi!
Kintsugi is a centuries-old Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. It has adopted many names over time like “golden joinery” and “Kintsukuroi” which is where Kintsugi was derived from. This innovative approach to fixing damaged artefacts serves as a symbol of beauty in accepting what is flawed and imperfect.
The philosophy behind kintsugi can be seen as a method of keeping an object around even after it has been broken, rather than getting rid of it because it has stopped serving its purpose, highlighting the scars of the broken item can be seen as events in the lifetime of the object. This also gives new life to the pottery and a whole new perspective. The scars will now become the object of exhibition, creating a truly beautiful work of art.
