Small Wrapped Stone by Mindful Objects
This product is currently sold out.
Each stone is intuitively wrapped using centuries old ornamental knots used in Japanese Ikebana Basketry. The process is deeply meditative and it takes time to connect with each stones individual nature, therefore each stone is one of a kind.
Connecting with the wisdom of stone, the embodiment of Earth formed millions of years ago is an invitation to listen and draw alongside the calming presence of the stone. Holding a stone serves as a grounding force that allows us to feel the nurturing influence of mother earth.
Mindful Objects was created by designer Flik Hall as a space to explore and create thoughtfully designed objects. Having navigated a challenging period of poor mental health, it was important for Flik to channel her energy in a calming and restorative way. The core focus is on consciously creating through meditative processes to nurture and maintain balance.
Her first objects are a series of cane wrapped stones using centuries old ornamental knots used in Japanese Ikebana basketry.
It is Flik Hall's hope that the stones meet and support people on their individual journeys as well as our collective journey, reweaving the parts of ourselves that have become distanced from or separated from our belonging within the more than human world. The stones can be used as a contemplative focus for meditation or simply to hold close by nestled in your hands or however you feel called. May we stay curious.
Handmade in London, England
END OF LIFE
Each stone represents hours of work, and should last a very long time if handled with care. If you don't like it anymore, this beautiful piece can be a mindful gift for a dear friend.
THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Never we have seen anything more calming, more combining the vast strength of nature with the mindfulness of delicate craftswomanship, then these Mindful Objects. Flik Hall creates these objects according to traditional Japanese Ikebana basketry. Although her studio is based in London, we feel like these stones are emerging from another time of humanity, from a time in traditional Japan, where crafting the most precise and simple way was highly valued. The stones can be used to meditate with, or simply as a treat for the eye, holding so much wisdom within.
