Just Add Water

For thousands of years, Zen Buddhist monks have been painting with water on stone as a meditation on impermanence--making ephemeral marks that disappear as the water evaporates. This hand-cut slate tablet and brush set encourages a similar practice to express wishes and affirmations, practice sumi-e (brush painting) and calligraphy, and focus your mind through a creative exercise. The tablet can be used over and over again; just add a little water and an open mind. Slate handmade in Seal Rock, Oregon by Kelly Barker. Brush imported.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
