One-of-a-kind little incense holders hand-built by Japanese-born New York-based artist Miwa Neishi. Inspired by the form of Japanese and Chinese kanji, the Moji pot is the artist's signature piece. Reimagined in a miniscule size as an original piece for DAMDAM, they are created to hold an incense stick or displayed simply as an object.
"In this modern world of technology and mass-produced objects, I think many of us forget the history of our living with nature. Pottery has been part of people's lives since the prehistoric era all over the world, and that means most of our ancestral cultures have experienced working and living with clay. It's important to know how we used to create tools and objects by hand. It connects us to nature and reminds us of our original way of living. As an artist, I hope my objects will bring visions of reconnecting to the earth," says the artist about her work.
