haha i told stephen today that we should only ever buy blue and white ceramics from now on. followed by a cringe from us both that i should ever get enough space to store more ceramics. I love those ones on the top at the back.. i take it they are the new ones?
hahahahahah! we are truly hopeless. twins at birth, separated. both with tolerant husbands! yes - those ones at the back are the new ones. i only bought three, to (mis)match the other three little bowls (one of the ones in the very front). do the japanese call this mismatched style 'wabi sabi'???
hmm, i have never undertood wabi sabi, i think its something to do with seeing beauty in the natural and weathered qualities of things. so i guess miss matched plates would be the beauty in the imperfection that comes with broken plates? what ever it is, I"m there, and i love it.
wikipedia wabi sabi: 'aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience''Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity, simplicity, modesty, intimacy, and suggest a natural process.'
collection, non-presciousness regarding sameness, lovingly gathered and selected? i think so!
