wholesale - 'love your imperfections' - 10 pieces
Due to the nature and small scale of production of my work, custom wholesale orders are not possible. However I sometimes make available small batches which can be ordered from the wholesale section of my webstore, for resale purposes.
Every one of us has a crack or two (or three), it is what makes us human, and it shows we have lived. The Japanese art of golden repair, known as 'kintsugi', takes a broken ceramic piece, and makes its flaws shine by applying urushi lacquer and gold powder. The resulting vessel with its golden highlights is more treasured than ever.
Individually hand stamped using Japanese pigment inks and hand carved rubber printing blocks. The bowl is then hand foiled in gold to show fault lines, as would be achieved through kintsugi, or 'golden joinery' in a 3D piece. Each print will have natural small variations, due to the methods used. The foiling sometimes sticks to the inside of the protective packaging - sliding a hand gently down between the print and the clear bag will release any such areas.
Printed on 100g oatmeal 100% recycled paper (with natural flecks).
Paper size: A4 (210 × 297 mm or 8.27 × 11.69 inches).
Signed in pencil and stamped with nakamura characters [中村] in red ink.
The wholesale set comprises 10 pieces (unframed), individually wrapped in clear film with greyboard backing.
Each print will have natural small variations, due to the methods used.
