Who Said Broken

About this project

My philosophy is that everyone and everything is precious and nothing should go wasted. I started using the Japanese technique ́Kintsugi ́ when I had several kiln failures and most of my shell porcelain broke.
A handmade ceramic piece it ́s lots of hours of errors and experimentations. Using pure gold to put the pieces together led to an exceptional result . The cuddles transformed into a beautiful delicate art piece.
