The “Shigaraki En” washbasin is made using traditional Japanese techniques. En means circle in Japanese, explaining the design concept of a perfect circle with a thin edge. “Shigaraki En” was redesigned as a modern washbasin, incorporating the unique “wabi-sabi” (Japanese aesthetics centered on acceptance of transience and imperfection) features of Shigaraki homeware.
