happy nowruz!

Happy Nowruz!  Today many people are celebrating Persian New Year which occurs on the first day of spring. It is a festive time of the year filled with many wonderful rituals such as seeing family, friends and neighbors; setting up a traditional table setting called the “haftseen”; and jumping over fire, which isn’t as dangerous as it sounds. 😉 Since many of the traditions celebrate our connection to nature, I thought I’d write about a design object that derives its beauty from the natural world. This pretty wooden pendant I found the other day on Supermarket is handmade in the Bay Area of reclaimed wood by Tinkering Monkey. I loved the perfectly imperfect stripe pattern of the wood grain so much that I bought one for myself.

Speaking of wabi sabi style, I can’t help but think of Japan and this artwork from illustrator Tatsuro Kiuchi.
