I have recently been introduced to the Japanese art aesthetic, wabi sabi, and I’m in love with the idea!
Some thoughts on the idea include:
- Celebrating imperfections as part of a beautiful universe that makes you, you
- “If an object or expression can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be wabi-sabi.” (Andrew Juniper)
- “Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.” (Richard Powell)
In celebration of this ideal, I’ve created some new merch I hope you enjoy! One listing is created for customizable apparel, and the other for everything else. 🙂
One more thing to look forward to… I’ve decided to take this idea and shape my newest string quartet sketches around it. Look for a new string quartet work to be revealed soon!
