Musubi Vase - Tsuchi
by Gato Wood Works
from Mr Kitly
An artfully hand-turned vase for displaying fresh flowers.
“Musubi” is the Japanese word for the spiritual power of growth that is found in all natural things. Inspired by this philosophy, the Musubi vase collection displays fresh-cut flowers with the same dynamic grace as if they were still growing in the earth. Each vase is hand-turned and carved from Japanese Zelkova wood, which is traditionally used to make Taiko drums and furniture.
Each style is designed in a form inspired after one of the Five Elements, with Tsuchi (or Earth) representing the strong, solid surface of the earth. Perfectly symmetrical and smooth to the touch, this stunning piece is a testament to the perfection that can be achieved by a pair of human hands.
Materials: Zelkova Wood
Dimensions: Height: 5”/12.5cm, Diameter: 2”/5cm
Care: Hand-wash with mild soap. Use a clean cloth to remove dust from exterior surface, wiping gently.
