MYRIAM GREFF - FINE ART RESTORER

Specialized in the Kintsugi technique

Born in 1985 in Nice, France, I graduated from the famous ``Condé`` Art and Design School in Paris, where I specialized in Heritage Restoration. I started working for patrimonial institutions and antique dealers, and, as I was very fond of ceramics, I soon developed my skills in Kintsugi, a traditional Japanese restoration art, whose philosophy is to create beauty out of stressing cracks and flaws. I only use noble materials (gold, specific Urushi lacquer, earthy ``Tonoko`` powder…) and ancestral techniques (magnolia charcoal sanding, bamboo Funzutsu sprinkling, agate polishing…). Kintsugi is an art based on patience, meticulousness and precision - in the quantity of materials, of hygrometry, temperature, brushstroke… Sustainable it is based on recycling and upcycling. It gives a new life and a new use to broken items, using only eco-friendly components. I am so fond of this art that I had the idea to divert it from its original aim and use it for creative purposes. No longer to restore, but yet to create new objects of decoration and design.
