(For Kathy)

Artist’s Note: Kintsugi, which means “golden joinery,” is the ancient Japanese art of repairing broken pottery using lacquer from a tree mixed with fine gold dust. To this day, kintsugi pottery is a reminder that an object can far more beautiful and valuable if we embrace its cracks and imperfections. The same can be said about the beauty in people.
