Makiji Urushi Japanese Cherry Round Tray

Dimension: W 30cm x D 30cm x H 3cm

Weight: 405g

Material: Japanese Cherry with lacquer finish

When I touch this Tray its tactile surface reminds me of ceramic but the light weight makes me realise this is a wood tray.

If you are looking for that something special made from wood but want the look of ceramic then this is the tray for you.

When I think of Japanese lacquer coatings I picture smooth and shiny surfaces so Think!Forest’s lacquer technic completely opened my mind to a new world of possibilities with lacquer finishes. 

Makiji Urushi technique is a build up of lacquer layers applied over clay powder creating this very unique organic looking texture.

Think!Forest is a workshop studio based in Kanagawa.

The creator and wood artist Mr. Tazawa’s philosophy is “Simple design, quiet form”.

He creates objects with refined form and everyday function combined with the art of Urushi/lacquer technique, creating a beautiful balance which is a credit to Mr. Tazawa’s skill and thoughtful philosophy.

Not suitable for dishwasher.

Made in Kanagawa, Japan
