Is an arrt that repairs broken objects with GOLD. It means beauty in imperfection. Its a widely used aesthetic view in Japanese art where flaws are seen as a unique part of the object's history that obviously adds beauty, this is usually done on ceramics.

I love this style of repair, I am a collector of hand made pottery items but we use them all instead of keeping them for display. I'm always so sad when something gets chipped or broken. If I could figure out how to fix things with gold you bet I would! I'm pretty sure it's a very fine art form done by seasoned professionals though. Still, I wish I could find one of those locally to mend my precious clay items. It's super beautiful.

I saw a show on this on PBS. I believe they use glue to hold the pieces together, fill cracks, then paint the gold onto the fill.

In the case of ancient pot shards, they'll fit together bits from different pieces of pottery (like, 2 different cups) from the same kiln.

Really makes me want to break something just to do some repairs.
