The title of this episode is Kintsugi, Japanese for 'golden joinery'. It is the art of repairing a piece of broken pottery using a lacquer mixed with powdered gold (sometimes silver or platinum are used instead). This highlights the damage, rather than disguising or obscuring it. Philosophically, it recognises that damage and repair are both part of the history of a thing, something to be seen or recognised rather than disguised. See more
