PHILOSOPHY

割れを継ぐ
ひびを繕う
完全な”はじめ“に戻ることはなくても
手当をすることで
循環をうむ
全ては流れの中のこと。


What is "KINTSUGI"?
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken utsuwa (pottery, glass, ceramic items) by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. Treating the cracks doesn’t mean restoring to a former condition. However, it does mean giving a fresh lease of life and creating something with new beauty. Everything is in flow.
