  • Kintsugi



    In Western cultures the aim of traditional ceramic repair has been to make the broken item ‘as good as new’. Kintsugi on the other hand, leaves an obvious repair, one that may appear fragile but which actually makes the restored ceramic piece stronger, more beautiful, and more valuable than before. In this book, Bonnie Kemske explores kintsugi, its history as well as modern practices, using interviews with traditional kintsugi masters in Japan.
