DESCRIPTION

Primitive aged teak wood container originally used to store rice. We have added the shell inlay by hand to the top section. A multiple of uses such as storing towels, magazines, firewood etc etc

This antique 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.
