EDINBURGH CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL CHARITY
“Healing Touch” takes its inspiration from the Japanese art of kintsugi – the method of piecing broken pottery back together using a laquer mixed with precious metals.
It was designed for ECHC by the organisation’s arts activities coordinator Catriona Mcintyre.
The lines of repair are not unsightly blemishes, but beautiful marks that embrace imperfection and enhance the object’s history.
The gold lines embracing Oor Wullie proudly represent the journey of the children who have spent time at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital, recognising their resilience, strength and unique experiences.
