Repaired Base for Heart of Thorns

Kintsugi Repaired Base of Heart of Thorns

My porcelain maquette for a 25-foot sculpture, Heart of Thorns, was damaged while in transit to my January solo gallery exhibit. The base was damaged in many places when it fell on a concrete driveway. I repaired it using the Japanese Kintsugi method, which does not hide the cracks but accentuates them with gold bands. The top now sits amongst the monoliths in my zen garden.

Here is a link to the original unbroken “Heart of Thorns.”
