Mackerel Moments #6: Consumed By Ceramics - Jeanette Wee Talks Pots
"Shibui recalls the beauty revealed by the passage of time. Inheriting in an aesthetic of calm – colours subdued and brightness muted – this word reminds us to appreciate the things that improve with age. There is a grace in maturity, and the experiences of life mark their objects with a pleasant richness. You might experience shibui in the colour of leaves in early winter, or an old teacup on a table…”
- Ikigai And Other Japanese Words To Live By, Mari Fujimoto
