The profile of Yuki Tessler

I offer Kintsugi and Maki-e workshops in Amsterdam, Delft, Groningen, Rotterdam, Utrecht, and France now. Originally from Saitama, Japan, I began my diverse journey as a stage lighting designer in Tokyo for ten years. I’ve always had a deep interest in traditional Japanese dances and culture.

After moving to the Netherlands with my family in 2019, I developed a newfound appreciation for European architecture and culture, which enhanced my love for Japan’s traditional heritage and techniques. Today, Kintsugi philosophy and the art of urushi (Japanese lacquer) are central to my work. Kintsugi allows me to embrace imperfection both mentally and physically, while exploring urushi gives me insights into Japanese traditions and customs.

It is my pleasure to share the knowledge and techniques of kintsugi to a wide audience to spread Japanese culture and philosophy.
