Kintsugi with glass art highlight the metaphor of life: fragile and strong at the same time. It emphasizes the beauty in the broken: when something is damaged, it makes it more beautiful.
In Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold: it is called Kintsugi. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the object’s history, which adds to its beauty. Creating art with glass panels and reverse painting questions 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.
The Kintsugi experience I had in Tokyo was made possible by “Kuge Craft”, the couple has been doing Kintsugi and pottery art for 35 years!!
