“Wabi” represents the internal spirit defined by simplicity, humility, imperfection and asymmetry; “Sabi” on the other hand, implies the outer spirit and the notion of materialism and decay. Japanese Zen aesthetic is omnipresent in their art, architecture, poetry, tea ceremony and potteries, flower arrangements and gardens.
Zen art is traditionally made by Buddhist monks and nuns and is an exercise in patience, perseverance and discipline. Although the paintings appear to be simple, effortless and in some cases humoristic, they require rigorous technique and a mastering of the art of calligraphy.
Our new Dualitas Transcend collection was inspired by Japanese Zen aesthetic. The minimalistic collection is designed with natural Rutilated Quartz set to spin freely within the bezel.
The stone is particularly beautiful due to its golden or black rutile inclusions once considered imperfections. Rutilated Quartz continues to be used in meditation practices for its calming and centering effects.
