Kintsugi and Wabi -Sabi Collection

"The wound is the place where the light enters you."....13th-century Persian poet Rumi

Wabi-Sabi In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.

In my spare time, I really enjoy working with broken or damaged pottery and other items using in principle the Centuries-old technique known as Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. Obviously being a poor Artist I use Gold metal powders and not real Gold.  It gives me great pleasure to give a continued lease of life to pieces originally made by other Artisans. Here are a few examples of my work.
