Delaware Artist Creates Kintsugi Art as a USA Presidential Gift For The Japanese Prime Minister
At the request of the U.S. Department of State, Lewes Delaware resident Morty Bachar of Lakeside Pottery Studio created Kintsugi art for President Joseph R. Biden to present to Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga during his April visit to the White House.
"Kintsugi, as the practice is known, gives new life, healing or rebirth to damaged or aging ceramic objects by celebrating their flaws and history. One can consider how we might live a kintsugi life, finding value in the missing pieces, cracks and chips; bringing to light the scars that have come from life experiences, finding new purpose and meaning through aging and loss, seeing love and the beauty of imperfection and loving ourselves, family, friends and country, even with flaws," he said.
Lakeside Pottery Studio (www.lakesidepottery.com), nationally recognized Ceramic and Sculpture Restoration studio, was established in 2001 as a ceramic art and pottery teaching facility that is now focused on ceramic and sculpture repair and restoration in addition to custom made pottery and Kintsugi art. Lakeside Pottery also has implemented a large collection of pottery, sculpting, restoration and studio management web based education resources.
