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.”For DAMDAM, these whimsical incense holders by the Amami, Oshima-based wood craftsman connects us to the life of trees.
