Asanoha: Traditional Japanese hemp leaf pattern.

Show me where to look, but don’t tell me what to see.

The oneness of self and environment.


Useful. Beautiful. Simple.

Honest. Humble. Calm.

     Original designs – Traditional techniques.

Limitations breed creativity.

Solid wood – Sound construction.

Natural. Healthy. Serene.

Building more with less.

Shibui: subtle details; simplicity balanced with complexity; shibui objects become more beautiful over time; restrained and spontaneous, including a balance of highly refined and rough elements.

Butsudan: a temple or shrine, usually found in Japanese homes.

Tokonoma: a recess or alcove for displaying a hanging scroll.

“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

-St. Francis of Assisi
