JRE-Slovenia partnered with a bank and an artist and the result is a gorgeous ceramic bowl for paying bills used in all JRE restaurants in Slovenia. It is made in the kintsugi technique, which teaches us to admire what is imperfect and encourages us to repair damaged objects. The broken parts of the cup are joined together with glue with golden dust, which gives the product even more value and delivers the message about the strength of the connection.
Kintsugi - the art of precious scars
The 400+ year old Japanese art of kintsugi (golden repair) or kintsukuroi (golden joinery) is a pottery repair method that honors the artifact’s unique history by emphasizing, not hiding, the break. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. This profound message was presented in an invoicing bowl with a special feeling by artist Bojana Križanec.
Stronger than ever before
You won't realize your full potential until you go through the tough times. The past two years have been a true challenge for restaurants worldwide. We are not hiding that it left scars, but we are embracing the damage. And the invoicing bowl is a perfect presentation of that - repair is literally illuminated and we came out stronger than ever before.
