    Shou Sugi-Ban

    Shou sugi ban is an ancient Japanese exterior siding technique to preserve wood by charring it with fire to create a beautiful textured, ebony finish.

    The charcoal layer is not only fireproof, but it repels water, resists rot and insects while extending the lifetime of the timber, and it also looks amazing. The texture, colour and rawness are exactly what I was looking for.

    I am of the opinion that everything in nature is an art material.
