This mortar was hand made 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 Emperor of Japan had a Wabi garden. Wabi is for people who already have a lot.
