Spending a little bit of effort and time on your pieces make each one precious and your own. Also I found these work would fairly soothe me in many ways. Reapplying Urushi lacquer is the similar process like Kintsugi, as repeating a little of work at a time for days and weeks, it is very exciting to see pieces changing every time including waiting. This is such pleasure to nurture your items with your own hands.
The impressive aspect in Kintsugi is the moment when unique value is born out of the broken piece. This unique value features beauty in imperfection revived by relying to the power of nature. It shows us the importance of accepting everything that comes their way as well as the value of nature. This is something that I could not understand nor realize when I was younger. I believed perfection and new things are the ideal world. But it actually is not.
It got the life back!
What a shocking incident when your favourite ceramic break, get crack or chipped. It happens a lot to the careless person like me. It's like "not again!".
The painful appearance made me feel down and I put them away somewhere I didn't see or even threw away some of them that broke into pieces. I did know that there's a way to repair broken ceramics, but now that I'm living in Singapore, it's not easy to find the right place to have them fixed.
