Tell us about the specific inspiration behind one or each of your accepted pieces.
I was doing a piece for a friend on ‘BEAUTY’ and it occurred to me that the beautiful may not always be “Beautiful”. Like the broken pottery that is held together with gold, a Japanese Art of Kintsugi which values breakage and imperfections. According to Wikipedia, “As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.”
