Techniques: This jewelry is carefully handmade one by one. It's made of pottery and colored with the technique of "Kintsugi". "Kintsugi" is Japanese unique culture, that bonds cracked or chipped ceramics with lacquer and restores it by decorating the joint with gold, silver or tin. It was born from the delicate aesthetic sense of the Japanese which values and adores even the flaws.
Although we cannot see it in our eyes... everything is in a connection beyond our imagination.
My works is made of ceramic. I created it from scratch, and colored it with technique of Kintsugi. So every brooch is different and unique in the world.
Kintsugi is a culture unique to Japan. It was born from the delicate aesthetic sense of the Japanese which values and adores even the flaws. The natural lacquer extracted from plants slowly hardens over time, and by coating many times, it hardens even more. It is a bit similar to our life, which follows the process of destruction and regeneration, sometimes leaving all to God, but eventually grow with love.
I will continue to create unique works that are original and timeless while combining beautiful Japan’s unique culture with the present age.
