KINTSUGI

2016

deconstruction + fabrication 


Kintsugi Mugs focuses on the Wabi Sabi tradition of honouring the breakage or repair of an object for the history and story it adds to the piece. Discarded thrift store mugs, chosen for their commercial logos, were taken apart (smashed) and carefully put back together. Notions of the connection to objects and caring through control were explored.
