"to repair with gold"; the art of repairing pottery with gold or silver lacquer and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken.



I needed to finish a personal piece to get myself in a better frame of mind.

Inspired by this picture that has been floating around [link]

The definition most certainly tells us something about this piece form which we can draw our own conclusions.... Very powerful.

Thank you very much.

I wondered whether or not I made a mistake by not including the full definition on the picture itself, but that felt very cluttered. Some people have not read the comment underneath with the definition and have gotten a totally different perspective about this being about modifying yourself with something "over the top".

Though, I think that is pretty interesting as well :)

I agree! Interpretation is unique to everyone, it's nice to see the things people get from your work that you may not have seen before :)

this is amazing. The expression and the warm colour, and the fur and shading I love your style.
