Design Inspiration

Kintsugi is based on taking care of your mental health. The decoration and patterning represent mindfulness and taking a step back to ground yourself and appreciate the beauty of nature using our senses. The plants, trees, animals, and elements can be so easily overlooked in the modern day with everyday problems. The golden cracks and veins wrapping around the sculpture represent the Japanese art and Philosophy of Kintsugi, the act of mending broken pottery with gold to embrace the beauty of its imperfection. Sometimes we may fall and break, but we can take a step back, mend ourselves and be even more beautiful.
