Kintsugi art

By ColleenA
Something completely different from me today. During our 272 days of draconian lockdown in Melbourne, which ended last night but still with restrictions, I took up various crafts to keep me sane.
One of them was Japanese Kintsugi ¬…the art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted with powdered gold mica. I had fun breaking and mending these.

30% of the UA is for the photo: the other 70% is for the art of the mending (and prior breaking...)

What a great idea. You get out your frustration breaking and then feel a sense of resolution and joy in repairing!

The image is lovely Colleen!
