Designer Joana Meroz reclaims cracked china transforms it into beautiful work once again. She writes:

I celebrate their imperfections by glazing each crack in gold luster, and further transform it by turning the golden crack into a flower, placing the transfer of a blossom on one end, and a transfer of roots on the other. Other chips are also gold lustered and become the button of flowers, or bulbs – the decoration which I apply depends entirely on the shape and positioning of the chip.
