Shizen-seki, Japanese Chōzubachi
Item description - YO03010168
A Chōzubachi (手水鉢) is an ornamental waterbassin found in the traditional Japanese garden. It is used for the ritual washing of the hands and rinsing of the mouth before a person is allowed to participate in the tea ceremony or enter holy grounds such as Buddhist temples or Shinto shrines. Loosely translated Chōzubachi means waterbassin for the hands.
This Chōzubachi type is called Shizen-seki (自然石), which is Japanese for natural stone. This type is characterized by its rustic and natural appearance. In actuality, it is a stone as can be found in nature, turned into a waterbassin only by adding a water reserve. This specific Chōzubachi has to be buried partly underground after which it will become a very robust main part of the garden.
