Kintsugi Eggshells
I’ve always loved the Japanese art of “kintsugi” wherein broken pottery is repaired with gold and rather than trying to disguise the break or flaw, it is highlighted and therefore elevated to a status of beauty. Its age is celebrated, its history is seen, its flaws are revered. I think it’s a good way to think about ourselves, others and our relationships as we age - not to try to look like our former, younger selves but to embrace our “breaks and flaws” and to honor them and see the beauty in them.

Working from this beautiful concept, I've created a visual interpretation of it within these eggshells. Each eggshell reminds me of a bowl of noodles and shows a progression of noodles decreasing in each bowl. This piece also includes hand carved mini chopsticks, the last set being coated with 24 karat gold leaf.
