DESCRIPTION

Solid teak wood container. Originally used for pounding rice. Great by a fire with logs stacked or by a pool with white towels or for magazines. Multiple ideas that this wonderful object can be utilized for.

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.
