It’s our imperfections that make us unique and beautiful, which is why the art of Kintsugi is so special. Kintsugi is an old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold, encouraging us to recognise that we must learn that there is beauty in the cracks. Artisans use a lacquer resin mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum. The repairs are visible — yet somehow beautiful, it literally translates as "golden joinery" from Japanese.

Handmade porcelain kintsugi plate 22kt gold leaf kintsugi | Etsy

White porcelain kintsugi plate entirely handmade. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Each bowl and plate is carefully slab built in my studio, glazed in transparent inside, sanded smooth outside and fired twice at 1250°. The delicate look and lightweight feel of these bowls was achieved by using very thin slabs of porcelain. This Kintsugi is my…

Been feeling like your bathroom or kitchen could do with an update but don't have much dollar to spend? Read on my friend. A week or so ago I was over in Kensington having dinner at Balans Soho Society and I noticed in the bathrooms they had used a coloured grout. At that moment I realised I've been seeing this around a little bit at the moment, not enough to really call it a trend as such (and we all know this isn't the place to find out about trends anyway) but enough to peak my…
