The more broke you are the more light that gets through – which is true, a broken vessel will let in light.
Filled with Gold – When a pot is broken the the Japanese will join or mend the pieces together with gold. It actually makes the mended broken piece worth more money because they joined the broken pieces with gold. This art form is called kintsukuroi. This artwork repairs the pot and adds to keep the history of the pot. It also makes the pot no longer disgusting from the broken state.
