DESCRIPTION

Hand carved from a single piece of mahogany wood, an antique African side table or bowl. Great for placing a book or perhaps towels in a bathroom, magazines etc. A beautiful, versatile item that is both sculptural and usable.

This 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.
