Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art. Every break is unique and instead of repairing an item like new, the 400-year-old technique actually highlights the "scars" as a part of the design. After a recent issue with my own heart I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to use this technique.

This edible artwork is inspired by the ceramic sculpture made by French artist Chole Sontrop. I felt
this piece has a deep connection to the current situation the world is facing.
We have barricaded ourselves from the world, self-isolation for self-preservation. Boxed in and
reminiscing those carefree days of past and looking forward fiercely to enjoy the caress of the sun
and open smiles of people.
The feel of clay modelling is brought out by the row-rough textured finish attained using ANNA
AUSTIN Modelling Paste. Mask is added as a metaphor of the ongoing predicament.
