WABI - SABI
Geori products are exquisitely handcrafted one at a time. It is therefore impossible to have factory identical items. There may be natural blemishes/variations which make each piece of handmade product unique. From the slip-casting in the hand-made moulds, to the glaze dipping, to the application of the gold patterning - triangle by triangle, such blemishes are inherent in the manufacturing of the handmade products, so you may find minor distinctions which make your Geori buys special and truly one of a kind. This conscious decision by us not to reject ‘flaws’ go a long way in protecting the environment and preventing large quantities of fired clay from reaching the land-fills from where they are never recovered again. This is the Japanese principle of celebrating Wabi-Sabi.
