Broken Pieces 1
"Broken Pieces 1" ... Is an art work, made with a broken piece of porcelain, and part of a series of two rings under the same name. "Broken Pieces 1" is the bottom of a small milk jug in porcelain. With this series I want to emphasise the fact that we live in a throw away society, why do we replace so quickly when something is broken? To me the material stays as beautiful, it just comes with a story. I'm often challenged in mending something that is broken, because there is beauty in everything. Look at the special way in which the Japanese people see things. Kintsugi, is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. I love deeper layers of things, and here is my own take on it.
