Welcome to my Kintsugi Art page! What you'll find in my webshop are my handmade Kintsugi pieces, made with all my love in 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. You will find all Kintsugi pieces that are currently available in my Etsy shop.
Kintsugi is a Japanese technique of ceramic joinery with gold. It has a long history since the 15th century and is based on the philosophy and esthetics of wabi sabi - the beauty of imperfection. Kintsugi are pieces that once were broken. With Kintsugi, the cracks (scars) are being joined with gold which creates an absolutely unique look and feel with organic forms and an enhanced 'soul' of the piece. What has once been broken tends to shine even brighter afterwards, with its authentic beauty and powerful vulnerability. What a parallel to our own healing as human beings, or to the healing of the Earth.
"There's a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in" -Leonard Cohen
