How breaking my vase made it more valuable – here's how I embraced the Japanese art of kintsugi

As a potter I was always trying to find ways to reinvent broken or cracked pottery so that it could be reused as an interesting art piece. Then I discovered that what I was doing really had a name and a purpose to include positivity instead of sadness over that crack or broken piece.

Worth trying and really simple to do. I used different ingredients and some remade clay/glaze left over but the idea was the same and depending on your ability, very satisfying to accomplish.
