Wabi Sabi is a Japanese aesthetic that has appealed to me - no, called to me - in my pottery, photography and theology. It can be roughly summarized in these words:
Wabi-sabi is a beauty in things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.
It is a beauty in things modest, worn and humble.
It is a beauty in things earthy, wild and unconventional.
It is a perfect description of Jesus. It catches images of beauty in unexpected places and things.
