What is Kintsugi Art

Kintsugi, which translates to “golden joinery” in Japanese, is the art of repairing broken pottery using lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. This technique not only restores the functionality of the ceramic piece but also transforms it into a new work of art, highlighting the repairs as part of the object’s history rather than disguising them.

The practice of kintsugi is often associated with the philosophies of wabi-sabi, which embraces the flawed or imperfect, and mottainai, a sense of regret concerning waste, as well as mushin, the acceptance of change. Instead of throwing away broken items, kintsugi suggests a form of respect, reverence, and restoration, treating breakage and repair as part of the unique story of an object, rather than something to disguise.

Each kintsugi repair is unique, because of the random nature of the breakage and the individual craftsmanship and choice of materials involved in the repair. The result is often striking, as the metallic lacquer used for bonding accentuates the fractures, adding aesthetic value and strength to the pottery.

Kintsugi can also be seen as a metaphor for healing and recovery, where scars and healing are displayed rather than hidden, and adversity is embraced and transformed. It is a celebration of resilience, and a reminder that beauty often comes from brokenness.
