Kintsugi originated in Japan around the 15th century and is known as the method of joining broken ceramics with a seal which has been mixed or dusted with gold. The philosophy behind this method indicates that it is linked to the Japanese concept wabi-sabi which envolves embracing the imperfect. Kintsugi also references the philosophy of ‘no mind’, which involves acceptance of change and of fate.
The idea of change can sometime be a hard concept to accept but we are surrounded by it in life. This method displays how things change and can be transformed into something new and even possibly better.
