SANTA ROSA PLUM JAM | The Santa Rosa plum is a cross between an ancient Japanese variety and the wild American plum. Due to its delicate nature, the Santa Rosa plum is grown and handpicked by a few small, local farmers, and it's jam is highly coveted. Prepared by the Buxman family, located in the Central Valley of California, the fruits are certified California Clean (using neither synthetic nor natural toxins), harvested only when tree-ripened, and made to order. Paul Buxman is also an accomplished illustrator and painter and his artwork is featured on the packaging of this special jam.
KANSO VASE | A traditional Japanese garden would not be complete without sculptural pieces of stone, a water feature and plant life. This modern vase created using textured black slate incorporates stone, water and nature - true zen. Valerie suggests that it can also be used as a platform to display or burn your peony candle.
This set also includes an imported sapling demitasse spoon, fashioned from recycled food-safe metals and peony candle. All pieces are exquisitely packaged in a Sen-cha (green) mulberry paper box adorned with a handmade paper blossom.
