WABI-SABI

“Wabi-sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and depth in nature, accepting the natural cycle of growth, decline and death. An art that reveres simplicity, slowness, order and, above all, authenticity. Wabi-sabi is flea markets, not supermarkets; natural wood rather than laminate; rice paper rather than glass. It celebrates cracks, as well as the marks of time, climate and use. It reminds us that we are ephemeral beings on this planet, that our bodies as well as the world around us are dust and turn to dust. ”
