Inspired by Japanese techniques, David Sprakes explores the concept of ‘Wabi-Sabi’, a view that as an object weathers, ages and becomes imperfect, it doesn’t lose value or beauty; rather, it’s these experiences that make it all the more precious.

The Japanese influence can be further seen in the use of metals within his sculptures, inspired by ‘Kintsugi’ or the ‘Golden Journey:’ a practice used for centuries in Japan in which broken pottery is fixed using gold, ultimately making it more valuable and arguably more beautiful that when it was new.
