Do old, weathered, and broken things have their own special beauty? What are wabi-sabi and kintsugi? In this brief video, Kevin R. E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, will describe the aesthetic principle and Japanese ceramic repair technique using examples from our collection.

The video will appear in our Facebook feed and on our Vimeo page. Contact the Education Department at 440-775-8671 with any questions.

Presented with support from a Freeman Asian Arts & Culture Initiative grant from the Freeman Foundation.
