Emi Joyce

Emi Joyce was born in Tokyo, Japan, and lived there until 2010. Her pursuits in textile education, fine jewelry career, and experimental music scenes eventually led her to settle in Portland, Oregon, where greater access to nature changed her life.

She is currently a Kintsugi ceramic restorer and natural dyer. While she worked in a variety of creative jobs, her longest career was as a bench jeweler. Her lifelong craftsmanship and  knowledge of fine motor skills moved on to repair ceramics. Instead of creating new products, she loves mending damaged, but precious objects to give them new life. You can learn more about her Kintsugi work via instagram:  @modernkintsugirepairpdx
