This crafted ripple plate is a fantastic piece of woodwork by Japanese maker Tomokazu Furui. As well as being a large surface to present food on a table, this could also be used as a tray or a place to showcase your most precious pottery.
The cherry wood itself is full of character and is quite weighty, meaning it has some substance and rigidity. The surface has small markings where his chisel has ploughed through the wood, making small incisions as he goes along. This adds tractions and stability to objects placed on top. Tomokazu's signature 'tomo' is carved on the bottom.
Note: These are made by hand so each one may differ slightly from the photo, they all have their own character and feature unique wood graining.Dimensions: 31cm length, 19cm width x 1cm Height
