23″ DIA x 10″ high.
Antique container from Borneo made from aged buffalo hide with a natural organic rim. We discovered a beautiful patina after polishing. Great for holding magazines, towels, or simply as a piece of art.
This container 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.
