KINTSUGI 金継ぎ is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery, using a mix of laquer and powdered gold, silver or platinum.
Also known as 'the art of precious scars', it is a way of celebrating imperfections. Broken objects are not to be hidden but put back together and displayed with pride.
This collection, gilded in gold and silver leaves and metalic threads, comes as a reminder that us humans are sometimes alike broken pottery. And after difficult and confusing times, such as this pandemic, we might feel in pieces and scarred.
I hope this collection inspires you and makes you realize that sometimes it's the negative experiences that can make us more positive afterwards and the scars that can make us more beautiful, unique and precious.
