Art of Kintsugi – Perfect Imperfection
There is an art form in Japanese culture called “Kintsugi”. The literal translation of the word mean “golden rejoining”.
Ceramic pottery that has been broken is not discarded, but instead the pieces of pottery are repaired in a unique fashion.
The Art of Kintsugi bonds the broken pieces back together with lacquer, highlighting the cracks with gold. Kintsugi treats the pieces of broken pottery as the object’s past, rather than a flaw to disguise.
The technique behind this art form is recognizing the history of the object, repairing, and producing a masterpiece that’s even more beautiful than the original.
A lot of times we try to hide our flaws and conceal our “broken” damaged self to others, but we should learn to embrace the imperfect and let it become a unique part of our past.
Find value in the cracks and chips of your life. Revel in the experiences that shatter you. Turn your breaking into beautiful masterpieces.
The broken pieces of your life have made you who you are, so own it proudly!
