Wabi-Sabi Vessels

Introducing, out of the Upcycling Center at OWU, reuse – recycle recipe cards! This is the first of many!

  • Tools: miter saw, belt sander, drills
  • Level of Difficulty: intermediate woodworking skills
  • Materials: discarded wood, discarded glass pipettes and measuring bottles
  • Design execution: Kristina Bogdanov

Wabi – Sabi Vessels are inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of emphasizing natural materials, and the beauty of natural textures and patterns. The combination of discarded wood pieces and discarded lab equipment works well in achieving harmony of materials, which compliments simple arrangements of wild or garden flowers.
