stunning work from Morie Nishimura
Furniture of Prayer, 2011
from Nishimura’s site:
“In the old days, people gathered around the fire.
Fireplaces are the vestiges of that ancient tradition. However the act of burning firewood for family gatherings would drain our natural resources.
I was inspired by the opportunity to recreate the feeling of these situations. So I designed a shelf on which to put a family’s valuables. Those valuables are illuminated by sunlight as well as artificial light shining through a stovepipe.
This item is created from reclaimed wood and has an easy system of light control.My wish is for this furniture to serve as a gathering place for family, like a small church inside the home.”
more lovely work…
