Kintsugi, broken is beautiful

kintsugi
Kintsugi is a Japanese technique for repairing broken porcelain with varnish and fine gold dust. This technique dates from the 15th century. By carefully varnishing the cracks in between the porcelain, and thus accentuating it, a piece of ceramics became it's own unique artwork, becoming even more beautiful because of the gold cracks in it. This Japanese philosophy is based on embracing imperfection.
