Description

About the artwork
Nunthapojn's current body of work emphasizes on the rebonding of broken fragile material such as ceramic plates, pots, and vases inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery). Kintsugi is an art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. Instead of using powdered gold, Nunthapojn deploys her Thai heritage craftsmanship by connecting the broken pieces with hand sewn technique. She lets the flow and the fluidity of the metallic threads dictate the final shape of the mended ceramic. Her artwork touches on the contemporary visual cues as well as the prevalent idea of repurposing and upcycling.The techniques used in this artwork are darning, ceramic, and hand stamping.
