This piece is the result of shibori using indigo dye. The gold line represents kintsugi, which is a method of mending broken pottery. The philosophy of “wabi-sabi,” which is ingrained in Japanese people, finds the beauty of profound emotions in imperfection rather than perfection. In the modern age, in which diversity is required, everybody is imperfect, and that in and of itself is beautiful.

藍を使った絞り染めの作品。ゴールドのラインは割れた陶器をつなぎ合わせる金継ぎを表現している。日本人に宿る「侘び寂び」の哲学は、完全なものよりも不完全なものにこそ、しみじみとした情緒の美があると捉え。 多様性の求められる現代、人は誰しも不完全であり、それこそが美しい。
