Beautiful hand carved African teak stool, side table or bowl with lovely patina and added tin overlay. The entire piece is hand carved out of a single block of wood. Both sculptural and usable. We only select the best.
This stool, side table or bowl was sourced in the spirit of Wabi-Sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanence. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. A beauty of things unconventional. It is the opposite of vulgarity. The costs of achieving this kind of minimalism are seemingly inconsistent with its mission of aesthetic humility. This kind of luxury is for a select few: The Emperor of Japan had a wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
