Kintsugi: Repaired, Restored, Reborn

Kintsugi is the centuries-old Japanese practice of repairing broken pottery using lacquer mixed with precious metals, such as gold.  Kintsugi symbolically encourages us not to hide flaws and wounds, but to bear them visibly and discover the beauty revealed by imperfection.

The traumas of climate change, natural disasters, pandemic, politics and war have left the world in pieces. In this series, I explore the Japanese concept of Kintsugi, which reminds us of our capacity to repair, restore, and find beauty in the rebirth of that which has been broken.
