I would love to learn how to do kintsugi and have a couple of very nice bowls that need repair.

Blake Gopnik – ‘Golden Seams: The Japanese Art of Mending Ceramics’ at Freer
It’s not often that an exhibition makes you want to run home and smash your best china. But that could be the result of a visit to “Golden Seams: The Japanese Art of Mending Ceramics,” a tiny gem of a show at the Smithsonian’s Freer Gallery. Of course, before you start smashing, you’ll want to make sure you have access to a master of kintsugi.<

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.
