Kintsugi

 

Kintsugi also known kintsukuroi is the art of mending broken pottery with liquid gold

In ancient times, broken pottery was mended with liquid gold, making the vessels even more valuable than they were before

I really love this philosophy, especially in this day and age of throw away culture. It embraces the imperfections, rather than hiding them and transforms the broken piece into something truly special that we can treasure
