'Kintsugi’ draws inspiration from the ancient Japanese practice of repairing broken pottery with gold-dusted urushi (lacquer).

Rather than hiding the damage, kintsugi celebrates all the cracks or ‘scars’ for the unique history that they represent. The object is more beautiful for having been broken.

I am personally drawn to kintsugi as a metaphor for embracing 'brokenness' and imperfection as a source of strength. This piece for piano trio is my expression and exploration of kintsugi, and involves musical fragmentation, fragility, mending, and finding beauty in the 'cracks'.
