Lewes, DE, April 16, 2024- The Kintsugi pottery of Bachar’s was a crafted stoneware vase. What makes this piece unique is the incorporation of the 23.5K gold Kintsugi process, a Japanese art form that repairs broken pottery with gold, symbolizing the beauty of imperfection and the journey of healing.

Bachar expressed his delight at seeing the Kintsugi metaphor embraced on the international stage. “I am honored to have had the opportunity to share this symbol of renewal and healing as a white House gift to Japan’s leader and his wife,” said Bachar. “The Kintsugi work on this vase represents not only the beauty of imperfection but also the strength found in embracing our flaws and celebrating our journey towards wholeness.”
