Seeing beauty in the cracks


When I heard about the tradition of Kintsugi, I couldn’t get it out of my head. In Japan there’s an ancient tradition that when ceramic breaks, it’s then resembled using a gold laker to emphasize the cracks. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object instead of disguising it. The idea is that the cracks make it more beautiful than the original. It’s a reminder that there’s nothing more beautiful than being you. Comfortable in your perfect imperfections. That’s beauty.
