About The Event
WHAT IS KINTSUGI?
Ancient Japanese art of mending broken pottery with lacqer and precious metals highlightins the cracks and brokeness rather than hiding them. Kintsugi honors the journey of the vessel and believes the mended piece is stronger and more valuable.
Kintsugi is a powerful metaphor and art form to explore challenges, changes and new chapters in our lived experiences.
