Fragment: ”A part has broken off; a small, detached portion; an imperfect part” (Wikipedia) A fragment is always part of something bigger, it brings the quality of the whole piece but it has its culture-beauty. It can tell us about the past or the present.

A fragment is always part of something bigger, it brings the quality of the whole piece but it has its own beauty. It can tell us about the past or the present.

It has a role in arts, in culture, an in the history as well. In Japan, they have been using a technic call Kintsugi and Kintsukuroi when they glue with gold. After they glued together the pieces it could be useable but they do another step when they highlight the border of the broken piece with gold so the whole ceramic pot got a new texture a new look that's why it isn’t restoration but recalling a new piece.

Without a philosophic meaning, it wouldn’t be Japanese. This thought could be connected to the wabi-sabi thinking which accepted the faulty things and the imperfection. Furthermore in Japan when a tool got rusty because of using they rate it higher.

I also work with fragments. Marvelous art fragments from colorful glasses, antique chinas. It has all begun when a Herend china bird’s beak needed help. Since then I follow the philosophy Save the Savable. I give the old fragments a new life in a more elegant dress which going to have their own stories.
