About the owl Our Owlet is called ‘Kintsugi’ after the Japanese art of ‘Golden Rejoining’. We have been inspired by the idea that a cracked and mended vessel can still be beautiful and highly treasured. The breakage is part of the history of the object with all its cracks and flaws giving it a redemptive beauty. For people too, the brokenness of our past is an integral part of our unique story. We should not need to throw this away or cover it up but recognise where we have been, value the fractures, enabling us to transform our lives for a better future.
