Elana Stone “Kintsugi”

2015 sees Elana Stone release the first half of Kintsugi – her third studio album. Kintsugi – a Japanese word meaning ‘golden joinery’ – is the art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. In other words, it glorifies the cracks.
