Sculptural vessel handbuilt by wood craftsman Imada Tomoyuki in the island of Amami, Oshima.
Taken from trees that have either fallen from a storm or left on the roadside to be discarded, they're given a second life by Imada-san as beautiful objects. “I want you to understand and be attached to the individuality of the natural tree. I create objects using materials that return to the earth even after it has been used for a long time.”
The Chestnut Vase sits on a circular base while its rim and body retains the natural knots and hollows from its former life as a tree.
DIMENSIONS: Approximately 19 cm (H) x 9 cm (W) x 8 cm (D)
