Japanese Kintsugi Sake Jar Art Print

175.000 225.000 


The illustration celebrates ‘Kintsugi’, the ancient Japanese art of mending broken things. It is a metaphor for life where beauty can be found in things with flaws.

It features a classic narrow necked Japanese sake bottle with a slight ridge and uneven shapes to unveil the intention of the Japanese ceramicists to leave their mark in their work as a way of revealing the craftsmanship of the hands that made the object.

The bottle design imagines a lady wearing a deep navy blue kimono adorned with seamless wave patterns along with the classic hairstyle and hair accessories inspired by ancient Japanese block art prints. The kimono is lowered at the back to reveal a tattoo of the Asian decorative cloud whereupon the Fuji mountain and the iconic Torii gate rests with the sun shining above it. Above all, it is highlighted with beautiful seams of gold used in ‘Kintsugi’ to repair smashed ceramics.

Japanese Kintsugi Sake Jar Art Print for Wall & Home Decor.

Struck by the first line of “The Book of Tea” by Tenshin Okakura which reads:  “Asia is One”, Collective Memory has teamed up with illustrator Cella Marcy to release the “Asia is One” illustration series.

By reimagining what Asian countries would look like in an iconic blue china ceramic vase, the series is aimed at recognizing the cultural characteristics of each Asian country whilst at the same time celebrating the richness, diversity, harmony and mutually shared values of the region, which go far beyond the images of people just living on rice and noodles.
