These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
Bamboo-Wrapped Blessing Stone
To hold and behold. So much skill is invested in even the simplest piece of Japanese basket artistry, a craft that dates back thousands of years. There’s something almost poignant in the way the delicate strips of bamboo wrap the strong shape of the river rock. A blessing stone is meant to be given for a house warming, wedding or new chapter in one's life. Place your intention into the stone, then give it as a gift, and the blessing will follow. Each one unique. Made by hand in Kyoto, Japan.
