In February, the world is tinged with white, like the snow that falls silently and envelops everything in a blanket of purity. It’s a time that evokes the essence of winter, a season of tranquility and reflection.
In this scenario of delicacy and simplicity, I find myself contemplating the white porcelain bowls I have created. Their essentiality and aesthetic purity reflect the Japanese approach to design and wabi-sabi aesthetics.
In white bowls like snow, I see the beauty of simplicity and imperfection. Every crack, every mark of time adds character and depth to their aura. They are objects that invite contemplation and mindfulness of the present moment, a central practice in the wabi-sabi philosophy.
Japanese aesthetics teach us to find beauty in imperfect things, in the ephemeral and transient. White bowls represent an invitation to slow down, to appreciate beauty in everyday life, and to celebrate simplicity in its purest form.
In this cold month of February, the white bowls shine like small refuges of serenity, offering an oasis of calm and contemplation in a hectic and chaotic world.
