HONOR YOUR SCARS WITH THE ART OF KINTSUGI

化缺陷為美麗的金繼修補藝術

出版時間:2019/04/18

If you’ve ever broken a favorite mug, plate, or bowl, you’ve likely gone through several stages of sorrow. Tossing it would be an option, but there is another way. The Japanese art of kintsugi shines with broken pottery. This tradition, which means“ golden seams”or “golden joinery,”uses lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum to fix an object. It treats the whole breaking incident like a happy accident. We could all use the message of kintsugi in our everyday lives. Things fall apart and nobody is perfect. That’s life.

如果你曾打破一個最喜歡的馬克杯、盤子或是碗,你可能已經經歷過幾個階段的難過。扔掉它也是個選擇,但是還有另外一個方法。日本的「金繼」藝術讓破損的陶器綻放光芒。這項意思為「金色線縫」或「金色木工」的傳統用亮漆混合金、銀或白金來修復一件物品。它把這整個打破東西的事件視為一場令人開心的意外。我們都可以在日常生活中應用金繼的中心思想。東西都會破碎而且沒有人是完美的。這就是人生。
