Kinstugi on marble | 2022
This new series of kintsugi (“gold joinery”) on marble and granite reflects Cascales Alimbau’s fascination with the idea of imperfection — choosing to anchor her work in the Japanese value of natural process and the beauty of age. Composed of natural materials that evolve with the passage of time, “Vetas” uses the Japanese ceramic repair technique that uses gold to repair broken objects, highlighting scars from use and time as symbols of life and learning. After the infusion of gold, the object — once broken or marred — is now considered more valuable. The work inspires the viewer to apply this same philosophy to ourselves and our ability to overcome difficult stages of life with resilience.
