About Kintsugi as a craft

Kintsugi is an traditional Japanese technique where broken ceramics can be put together with golden glue. Basically, the philosophy is all about seeing the beautify in imperfection and take care of one's things.

It is an ancient technique that comes from the wabi-sabi philosophy. By putting together and creating a new whole even more beautiful than before. Beauty is in the imperfect, and the philosophy focuses on this instead of the fact that the ceramics in not in its original state. Thinking like this can lead to human beings celebrating flaws and using them actively in order to understand history. What a lovely thought!
