The Wabi-Sabi Home

In his renowned book Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, Leonard Koren sees wabi-sabi in “the way rice paper transmits light in a diffuse glow. The manner in which clay cracks as it dries. The color and textural metamorphosis of metal when it tarnishes and rusts. All these represent the physical forces and deep structure that underlie our everyday world.”
