Manzanita Wall Sculpture

A found manzanita branch becomes an artful addition to a wabi sabi garden.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wabi stems from the root wa, which means harmony, peace, tranquility and balance. In early Japanese poetry, wabi meant sad, desolate and lonely, but also humble by choice and in tune with nature — like this simple garden sculpture.

Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, by Leonard Koren (one of the best gifts I’ve ever received). Before I read Koren’s book, I knew I’d found myself in this ancient Japanese practice of revering gracefully weathered, rusty things. Finally, there was a word I could use when my mother asked when I planned to paint the old wooden French doors in my dining room and why I worked on a 1940s enamel table. I delved deeper and learned that decor is just one facet of a philosophy that promotes attention, reverence, generosity and respect. In any culture, these are a happy home's foundations.
