Kintsugi

Final major project
‘Kintsugi’ translates a fascination in Far-Eastern culture; the calm nature that contrasts with the 21st century pace of life, its minimalism and the small details that complement rather than overwhelm. I found my main form inspiration from Japanese practise Kintsugi where broken ceramics are repaired with gold, to recognize the history of the object and visibly incorporate the repair into the piece instead of disguising it resulting usually in something more beautiful than the original. This process of embracing imperfectness resonates throughout my work and process of being a hand weaver. My textiles translate qualities of lightness into cloth. The subtle tones and iridescent nature of Koi carp are the basis of my colour palette. 'Kintsugi' presents interior textiles that contrast graphic pattern with watercolour like painted cloth to create a calm contemporary space.
