A Philosphy for Aging

Kintsugi (金継ぎ?)  is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold.  The philosophy treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

Japanese Bowl blog-dsc_1598 by Peter Mayer is one of the songs the Winsome Hags will perform for the Edwardsburg Golden Agers on Wednesday, September 2. See how we shine with gold!
