Kintsugi

This is the photo for this week’s Cool Photo Post (I got it working apparently)!

Kintsugi, or Kintsukuroi, is the Japanese art form of putting together broken pottery with gold or silver, and this is supposed to show that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. I saw this picture originally on Pinterest, but I Googled kintsugi to find just this shot because this bowl is kind of plain looking, really. The gold really adds to it, and I believe that’s the whole point of kintsugi.

Enjoy!
