    Harriet Lawton - Handstitch Kintsugi Plate "“My current work innovatively explores a crossing over of the textile and ceramic surface. I explore the use of ceramic waste, highlighting the ornate beauty within discarded china fragments. Each material is handled like the other; ceramic is delicately cut to reveal hidden lace-like qualities and digital prints lose their fabric fluidity as they become 3D objects, alluding to the form of the ceramic fragment." harrietlawtonart....

    "When I look at the bowl, I don’t see damage. The break and repair have made it more beautiful. It looks to me like an artist has riffed on a Japanese poem of a moon entangled in the branches of a tree, and etched it onto the bowl." Howard Kaplan, Freer Gallery on Tea bowl, possibly Satsuma ware; possibly Kagoshima prefecture, Japan, Edo period, 17th century; stoneware with clear, crackled glaze, stained by ink; gold lacquer repairs; Gift of Charles Lang Freer

    In mending the wounds of smashed ceramics, Yeesookyung does not disguise the cracks but highlights them in shimmering gild. The reformed ceramic works represent a beauty acquired through overcoming suffering. Yeesookyung acknowledges a beauty that comes only with maturing.
