24″ DIA x 10″ high.


Antique container from Borneo made from aged buffalo hide and formed to produce a bowl. Beautiful dark brown patina and natural organic rim. Great for holding magazines, towels, firewood, etc.

This container was sourced in the spirit of wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy that beauty can be found in imperfection and impermanenceIt’s a beauty of things modest and humble. It’s 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.
