These gorgeous clay vessels are designed to be both functional and decorative. While they can be used as a traditional pot or as centerpiece, they are actually designed to be a type of *reverse pot* that you can water from within...and the plants can actually be mounted on the outside!  

Wabi-Kusa does not have a direct translation, it is an all-encompassing term for the Japanese aesthetic school of thought that the imperfection, incompleteness, and irregularities of a thing are the qualities that make it beautiful. Wabikusa derives from the Japanese concept "Wabisabi" which is the acceptance and appreciation of the natural state of things. wabi means simplicity, freshness or tranquility. sabi is beauty or the serenity that appears over time, when the life of the object, the transitory and the imperfect play an essential role.

In modern Japan, the meaning of Wabi-Sabi often tends to mean "wisdom in natural simplicity." In art books, it is generally defined as "imperfect beauty." Combined with the word Kusa which means "grass" in Japanese you will begin to understand what it means Wabi kusa.
