The Kiso Wooden Tray
The Kiso wooden tray is the ideal for serving, decoration and place setting. The Kiso wooden tray has a rosewood finish and is handcrafted in Gifu, Japan. Wood sourced from the Kiso valley forest in Japan.
The Kiso forest is famous for the quality of its lumber. During the Edo period, the ruling samurai class put so much value on the wood that common people were prohibited from cutting the five trees of the Kiso river valley.
The Way Of The Wabi..
An aspect of Japanese ceramics is the beauty of asymmetry and imperfection. Cracks and flaws are a product of nature and time beyond the will of the human being. In 16th century Japan, the celebrated Japanese tea masters valued the beauty found in imperfect and irregular objects often in their most austere natural state. This led to the unassuming aesthetic ideals of wabi-cha: simplicity, purity, restraint, and humility.
