Kintsugi (金継ぎ, “golden joinery”) is the Japanese art of repairingbroken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-etechnique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
Traveling Stanzas community arts projects bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms.
