Anita Cerrato

Kintsu HandmadeCeramicist

The ancient Japanese ceramic restoration technique of kintsugi reveals a metaphor: finding opportunities within difficulties. Most Japanese craftsmen show some contempt towards an excessive mental approach to the practice, but for Anita Cerrato this metaphor is extremely important. She embraced kintsugi when her work as restorer began to fade, hindered by the younger generations’ lack of interest in antiques. The technique of fixing broken objects with gold gave her the possibility to revive old objects in a beautiful and inspiring way. Already a martial arts practitioner and tai chi instructor, Anita uses kintsugi to combine her two greatest passions: Taoist culture and working with her hands, describing artisanal work as the deepest form of meditation.
