Sand Vases by Yukihiro Kaneuchi
In Japanese culture “sand” is the reflection of research and it represents the Japanese flower. Inspired by Bou-Taoshi game, Yukihiro Kaneuchi designed the Sand Vases, a simple but special collection. Let me present you the rules of the games, they are simple: players have to make a heap of sand where they place a branch in the center, then they have to take turns removing sand but without letting the branch to fall, the one that lets the branch fall loses.
The vases have simple shapes and are made entirely in sand, in Japanese temples the conic shape is where god first came and the sand heap represents the divine spirit. Even if they are simple lines, this form has a big significance in Japanese mythology. It is also used for laying cornerstones in ceremony. As children were inspired by culture and created this game the same did Yukihiro Kaneuchi. It s collection represents divinity and purity, beside this the vases have a nice effect placed in a modern room, as a simple decorative elements that brings the nature and its beauty inside. If you are looking for a simple and styled vase this collection is the best answer.
