蘖とは、樹木の切り株や根元から生えてくる若芽のこと。 春から夏にかけて倒れた大木から新芽が息吹き、森が若返っていくさまをイメージして 素朴な佇まいの花器をつくりました。 天然木や古材にガラス管を合わせた、一輪挿しシリーズです。 大小いくつかを組み合わせて森のように見立てても、すくっと空に伸びる一木のようにさりげなく飾っても。 *   *   * 里山を生き生きと保つには、人が手を入れ、間伐や枝打ちを行い、草木の新陳代謝を促すことが欠かせません。 しかし、そうやって取り除かれた木や枝にも、それぞれの生命の物語が宿っています。 また、私たちが古民家を再生する時に出る端材や古道具も、長い間大切に使われてきた中で、一つ一つが特別な風合いを備えています。 そうした木の表情を、暮らしの彩りに。 はなれていても森の息吹を感じられる、里山くらしのおすそわけです。 ※通常、発送は1週間以内に行います。 それより後になる場合は、別途ご連絡いたします。 幅:5.5cm 奥行き:4cm 高さ:9cm —Hikobae (Tree Sprouts) Series— Sometimes when a tree is felled new sprouts will grow from the stump - we call these “Hikobae” (Tree Sprouts). Between spring and summer these new sprouts often burst forth from felled trees, filling the forest with fresh life. These simple flower vases were made to capture that sense of rejuvenation. The single-plant vases in this series are made from both locally-felled and recycled wood, as well as glass tubing" Why not collect both large and small sizes together to make your own miniature forest diorama? Alternatively, choose a single plant—like a tree stretching up to the sky—to decorate your room with. *   *   * In order to maintain the health of the satoyama, the residents engage in periodic thinning of the surrounding forest. This is vital for encouraging new growth, but we also think it’s important to remember that each and every tree or branch that is felled contains a unique story of that plant’s life. The same is true for the wooden materials, furniture, and tools we uncover during our work restoring and revitalising traditional Japanese houses. Each—used and valued for such long periods of time—is endowed with its own particular texture, and sense of personal history. Making use of the unique character of these wooden pieces, we turn them into something special—something to bring a bright spot of colour to your everyday life. Through this series we hope to share a piece of the satoyama with you, and let you feel the liveliness of the forest suffuse your home at all times, regardless of where you may live. WHKBTR20005
