Wabi-Sabi – a way of seeing : a way of being
Paperback | English
The concept of wabi-sabi is not easily defined. Leonard Koren, in his book Wabi-Sabi – for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers (Stone Bridge Press, Berkeley, CA, 1994), introduces the concept, which looks at flawed beauty, as “a beauty of things that are imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.” Understanding and recognition of the natural order of things is at the very heart of wabi-sabi.
