This crafted walnut plate is a fantastic functional piece of woodwork by Japanese maker Tomokazu Furui. The hand-carved touches on this object connect you with the craftsman each and every time you pick it up. You can see that the plate is edged quite beautifully using a chisel, there's also small chisel marks on the bottom and top of the plate.
The walnut wood itself is full of character and is quite weighty, meaning it has some substance and rigidity. Overall a fantastic dish that's very unique. 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.Dimensions: 22.5cm diameter, 2cm height
