The art of Kintsugi

Imagine you had a beautiful bowl, and it broke.

You could throw it away – it’s useless.

You could mend it invisibly – shhhh, it’s a secret, no-one must ever know it broke …

Or you could mend it using gold, so the break will always be a part of what it is, and the mend a beautiful, essential element of its recovery, strength and continuing life.

This post really wasn’t about pots.
