Ceramic tile, kintsugi plywood, live edge cedar
I flew to Banff, and in those high mountain kilns, I fired this piece using my mother's black and white 1955 class photo, only to be able to destroy it in Toronto while reading the names of the children with each strike of the hammer, then eventually rebuild it in Thunder Bay. The frame uses period barn board and live edge cedar. I then used the art of Kintsugi to show the beauty in the broken.
