DESCRIPTION

Stunning antique art piece or container originally used to pound rice. Beautiful teak eroded sides on this special piece. We have added the shell inlay by hand to the top section. Great for a plant, or a multiple source of creative possibilities.

This antique rice pounder 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.
