About Kintsugi Gifts
The Japanese art of Kintsugi, or Kintsukuroi, repairs broken pottery with seams of gold. This repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the object even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken. At Kintsugi Gifts, we gather old, broken and sometimes forgotten ceramics and pottery to create pieces of art.
Each Kintsugi Gift is handmade. We take the pieces, mend them with glue, smooth them out and fill the seams with gold paint (see examples below). Just like the human race, no two are alike.
This first healing spot is always near the base, which is the strongest piece left after being broken.
Each Kintsugi Gift is stamped with our special emblem - the Japanese symbol for rebirth coupled with two swirls. The swirl is a significant ancient symbol that has historically represented new beginnings.
Included in your shipment is the story of Kintsugi, printed on an elegant card. Keep it next to your piece of art or use it as a display mat. When someone asks about your Kintsugi Gift, read them the story.
OUR HOPE FOR HEALING
Our lives can become broken in so many different ways; despair, hurt, fear, failure, addiction, disease. Each time we fix ourselves the new beginning makes us stronger. Our bonds are re-enforced through mending. We are stronger and more beautiful for being broken.
Be sure to check out our customer feedback and see how others are mending themselves.
