MORE BEAUTY IN THE BROKEN
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. This “KINSTUGI” collection made of glass, emphasizes the beauty of the “broken”: when something is damaged, it makes it more beautiful as it reveals an experience that happened in life. Using glass as a particular medium - a transparent fragile matter - is a metaphor for life, its fragility and its strength.
« Les objets acquièrent je ne sais qu’elle grâce et quel attrait par les accidents même qui leur surviennent. »
