The Way of The Wabi..
An aspect of Japanese ceramics is the beauty of asymmetry and imperfection. Cracks and flaws are a product of nature and time beyond the will of the human being. In 16th century Japan, the celebrated Japanese tea masters valued the beauty found in imperfect and irregular objects often in their most austere natural state. This led to the unassuming aesthetic ideals of wabi-cha: simplicity, purity, restraint, and humility.
