The project entitled KÍNTSÜGÍ has its origin in the Japanese philosophy of wabi sabi and Prekmurje pottery. Old, discarded pieces of the Prekmurje earthenware and worn nylon tights are used for designing the collection of textile installations and sculptures/masks. Embroidery and overlock stitches with metalized silver and black threads illustrate lacquer, which is used in the traditional Japanese technique of repairing broken earthenware products – kintsugi. During the repairing process, the aim is not to hide the flaws, but to strongly and in a beautiful way emphasize the broken lines.
