Wabi Nabe

Hand Poured Cast Iron
Licensed to ODLCO


A pot designed to be at home anywhere in the kitchen landscape.

Drawing from Japanese terms for simplicity, roughness, and one-pot cooking, Wabi Nabe features a simple aesthetic and holds 1.5 quarts in volume of whatever you can find. The burnt wood handles are cast from forms found while hiking sites of recent wildfires in California, and are inspired by the wabi-sabi philosophy.

Wabi Nabe highlights the functionality of a cooking pot, and resonates visually as tableware. Cast iron is a perfectly versatile material, appropriately transferring from the oven, stove top, fire place, or table. It is a design suitable for cooking small meals or portions of a large one. When several are placed on the table to share, this pot highlights the sociable characteristics of eating.
