Red Plant Dye Tray

by Yusuke Tazawa

Red plant dye tray handcrafted by Japanese maker Yusuke Tazawa. This darker red colour is quite beautiful, the carved markings on the surface of the tray add aesthetically, but also serve a function as they give traction to anything placed on top.

The tray is large enough for a tea set, and features bevelled underside and corners so you can fit your fingers under each edge to pick it up. An item to be cherished. Made by dipping the wood in plant dye, then an oil finish with a liquid glass coating, and finally finished with wax.

Please note that each tray is individual and features slightly different markings from where the craftsman has been at work.

Approx Dimensions: 26cm Length x18cm Width x 1.5cm Height
