Tsukubai

Garden VA
2006

Tsukubai - stone bowls are usually made of solid stone and are iconic in nature. Water enters through a bamboo pipe - kake. Tsukubai provided with special wooden ladle - tsukubai-bisyaku. Initially, these pools were the attributes of Buddhist temples in Japan and were used for ritual washing of hands and rinsing. Tsukubai are an integral part of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Sometimes supplemented kake simple bamboo mechanism that produces the sound of a specific frequency. On some tsukubai endorse, the content of striking "try to be content with what I have."

Two current sample were made to order for my sketches at one of the Makarov District. The reason is that the market is no quality design elements in the style of Japanese gardens.
