Collections › Cut & Mend

I was inspired by the Japanese way of mending a broken bowl with glue that contains gold powder in order to highlight the lines of the break and making the mended object more precious and personal than the original.

This approach is in line with Wabi Sabi, my favorite philosophy: the beauty of things imperfect. All of the techniques used in this collection have surface treatments that start with a cut and have a specific way of being mended:
