Kintsugi

I recently read the book Wabi-Sabi, and I fell in love with the concept. It's about learning to embrace the imperfect and entertain with thoughtfulness and ease. Basically not worrying if your place looks perfect when you have people over but worrying more that it's warm and welcome. Less pomp and circumstance. One thing the book talks about is not replacing things that are worn or broken, but embracing them. Sometimes we are too quick to throw out the old and bring in the new. That's what I loved about Kintsugi. So often a bowl will break and I throw it right in the trash! You don't have to do that you can fix it and make it look beautiful. 

Invaluable created a tutorial on Kintsugi, the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold. This tutorial is so easy to follow and will help you turn your damaged piece into a brand new gorgeous piece. Check out their video below on how to make kintsugi art!
