The Kintsugi is a Japanese art which consists in gathering the broken pieces to make new ceramic creations, using a laquer mixed with gold and silver. Tokyobike has recently launched in London a workshop dedicated to this singular art and has filmed two artists in their process : Muneaki Shimode and Takahiko Sato.

The Art of Broken Pieces

Kintsugi: "It is a practice in Japan where they mend cracked or broken ceramics with gold, rendering the piece even more beautiful than it started out. The idea behind it is not to hide the ugliness and brokenness but instead to use gold to make it shine; to illuminate and expose the damage. And at the end of the process the piece is even more beautiful having been broken." Amen, I say.
