ishi doro

 

My indoor lanterns are based off of the traditional Japanese ishi-doro and are a classic example of my functional art. Originally introduced to Japan by China, the first ishi-doro were made of metal and primarily used to light doorways to shrines and temples. They were later made of stone for use in gardens, but it wasn’t until tea-master Sen-no-Rikkyu introduced them into Japanese tea gardens that ishi-doro became a major garden element. My ishi-doro are made with sustainable wood left over from other projects and are available in sizes ranging from the table top version (as pictured) up to large floor models. All ishi-dora are illuminated.
