Healing Touch

The design was inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi, the method of piecing broken pottery back together using a lacquer mixed with gold or other precious metals. The lines of repair are not unsightly blemishes, but beautiful marks that embrace imperfection and enhance the object’s history. The meandering gold lines proudly represent the journey of the children who have spent time at The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh, recognising their resilience, strength and unique experiences.
