Featuring our Wabi-Sabi ink series: A nod towards a traditional Japanese aesthetic that hones in on the beauty of impermanence and imperfection. Here, lush watercolors organically wander, pool, and layer, exposing delicate inconsistencies of the paintbrush and finished with a simple line of copper leaf kintsugi. Available in persimmon, silver, peony, cobalt, plum, and fuchsia. Custom sizing, treatment and framing available.
Kintsugi | 金継ぎ (golden joinery), or Kintsukuroi | 金繕い (golden repair), is the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken. As a philosophy, it speaks to breakage and repair becoming part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
