Flowerpot made from reclaimed Buddhist altar fittings
Wabi-sabi pots are brass flowerpots made from reused (unused) Buddhist altar fittings. Each pot is manufactured by sand mold casting and colored with a baked lacquer finish. Its main characteristics are its peacock design, which also comes with ears. These pots have holes in it, as well as three legs, which allow for excellent drainage and air circulation. Please note that the pot gets hot in hot weather due to its high thermal conductivity.
