While doing research on kintsukuroi, as I am writing a short story with the philosophy of the art form for my highschool English class, I found this image and it always really impresses me. I absolutely love it. You did a wonderful job depicting the "kintsukuroi" we go through as people. Love the colors, the pose, the lighting, EVERYTHING. Perfect work! Clap Heart

I learned about fixing pottery with gold, by playing an otome game... Odd... But I love how that  is the idea of this piece! And I love that one of my (if not my #1) fave female stock artist was the model for this! Sakky is :heart:
