Karamatsu - Sola Cube

Regular price $48 Unit price  per 

When you gaze upon a sola cube, there is a childlike wonder that fills that moment.  Like the crystal clear resin that suspends the preserved seed, flower, plant inside, one feels suspended in disbelief over how such an object was formed, marveling at the natural world it has captured, to become your palm-sized treasure.

Considerable craftsmanship is required to make each cube.  From inserting the plant, to hand-polishing the resin down to its clean edges, to ensuring that no tiny air bubble distract from the specimen itself - this cube is a display of both human and natural perfection.  

Place this sola cube in your most favorite area,  away from direct sunlight, and fall into a meditative wonder.

Karamatsu: The name 'Karamatsu' comes from the way in which its leaves are attached, resembling a pine tree or 'Matsu', in the Chinese-style of painting ('Kara-e').  The pine cone opens itself up when dry, allowing the seeds in between its folds to fly away and become new growths.
