In case of an Emergency,
(DO NOT) break the glass.

Beauty in the broken.

The Kintsugi collection emphasizes the beauty of the broken: when something is damaged, it makes it more beautiful.
In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Aurelia Bizouard creates art with glass panels and reverse painting questioning the meaning of life. This japonese philosophy, where broken objects are often repaired with gold explains that the flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty.

Glass vibrates such as life. Each tiny piece of glass, that broke from a previous glass artwork, represents different experiences in life: back together it creates one luminous piece of art, reflecting a beautiful bright life when adding up all experiences we get in life.
