Everything Can Be More Beautiful For Being Broken!

Feb 22, 2014 | Life With Art



What is broken can be far more beautiful.

That includes all of us!

kintsukuoriThis is the gorgeous philosophy in Japan from a famed fable of Kintsukuroi.  You can read the fable in its entirety HERE but the moral of the story: when something is broken it can be more beautiful. Now, Kintsukuroi pottery-  repaired with golden “glue”- is the art form that demonstrates both the fable and this amazing concept.

With all of the “perfection” pressure in our world, the idea that flaws and struggles can actually enhance rather than damn us is something to take to heart.  If you can really dive into this philosophy, suddenly the hard times become the veins of precious metal that build value, character and unique strengths.

If you ever feel like you have been shattered, remember that this can be the chance to emerge more radiant than ever.

And if you are overcoming your own perfectionism or a real trial in life, you might want to get (or make one, a kit is right HERE) yourself a piece of kintsukuroi pottery and display it proudly.

Being real is far more beautiful that being perfect. xoxo Dana

    “They aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold, because they believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.”

    That’s truly beautiful. I’ve seen this type of pottery before and never thought to consider why it was like that. I love that my mind is a little more open from reading this. That’s the best part. Thank you!
