Kintsugi "golden joinery" is the traditional Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold and urushi lacquer.
Tomomi Kamoshita, our visiting artist based in Tokyo, will share the art in a modern version of kintsugi technique.
Two different workshops will be offered during her visit. One is to create something new with broken pieces and the other is to repair the broken ceramics returning them to functional pieces.
Let’s embrace the flawed or imperfect art objects in philosophy of “wabi sabi” and celebrate the beauty from different perspectives.
Keep a favorite broken plate or cup until these workshops in the Spring of 2019 when you can make a new art pieces of your own.
We plan to create these workshops for all ages.
