Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery"), is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. This piece was created to accompany Beth Kempton’s article ‘Wabi Sabi: The Japanese philosophy that will help you embrace change and accept the past’ as part of an assignment for Lilla Roger’s Bootcamp.
As part of my work for Lilla Roger’s online course ‘Illustrating Children's Books’, I chose to illustrate the text ‘Grandma’s Garden’ by Zoe Tucker. It is a sweet, emotional story that beautifully evokes the feeling of seasons passing and the circle of life. I imagined the main character, Coral, to be a thoughtful, sensitive and somewhat otherwordly little girl and Grandma Pearl to be a bit of an eccentric gypsy with a wild past. You can see here how much the characters evolved over the five weeks.
‘What is Love’ is a beautiful, heartfelt story teaching children about the qualities of love. Using the animal kingdom’s ‘soul mates’ as the characters in the story, readers learn important social and emotional skills. Wolves, gibbons, owls, swans and other animals that mate for life, show young readers how to care, how to share and how to show love for another.
