me speak design | Kintsugi Arch bowl

The handcrafted work of ME Speak Design infuses the elements of both the Japanese and southern heritage. Refined and rustic, delicate and responsible for their tasks. The brass is hand hammered and worked multiple times until it is shaped just so and sits on a ringed base - and the hand torch gives each peach its perfect patina. This piece integrates Kintsugi - the art of perfecting the imperfection with the copper support noted above. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. Hand wash.
