14″ dia x 26.5″ high.
Antique rice pounder carved from a single teak root and bleached. Beautiful as a sculpture, holding towels or great as a champagne holder for parties. Also as a table base with a glass top.
This vessel 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.
The St. Barts Collection features an exciting new line of organic white wash, bleached and natural weathered teak furniture. The reclaimed teak is bleached and left to bake in the sun and sea salt air for over a year to achieve this unique finish.
