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.”
Reminiscent of the vessel the Water Bearer or the sign of Aquarius holds, this vase stands on three gentle prongs at the base while the rim is left natural and raw to remind us of its earthly origin.
DIMENSIONS: Approximately 15 cm (H) x 13 cm (W) x 11 cm (D)
