33″ long x shell 6″ dia.
A unique wooden ladle with a half coconut shell attached, originally used for serving soup. We added the shell inlay to the long wooden handles. Perfect perhaps to remove sand from your feet for a beach house, or simply leaning against the wall as a piece of art. We have a collection. The price and size reflect one. All unique. Please inquire.
This ladle 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.
