Kintsukoroi - Golden Repair

Dear Reader,

Have you ever heard about Kintsugi? Meaning is "golden joinery". Kintsukoroi is "golden repair". This is a Japanese art, repairing a broken pottery.


As a philosophy, kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.  (Wikipedia)

I think they are beautiful.

All item from my Ceramic Board.


I think they are gorgeous!

Have a great day and keep safe!
