The Zōgan “Embedded Ware” Tray seamlessly combines traditional Japanese dishware materials—porcelain and walnut. Crafted with exceptional skill, this unique marriage of organic and ceramic elements overcomes the challenges of uniting diverse materials. Elegant enamel geometries intricately embedded in rich, dark walnuts create a distinctive aesthetic, capturing attention as a captivating centerpiece or enhancing remarkable place settings.
The carefully chosen geometric shape plays a crucial role, allowing for the seamless fusion of the wooden panel despite the inherent difficulty in predicting porcelain shrinkage during firing. This tray stands out for its almost flawless integration of wood and porcelain, showcasing the expertise and dedication behind its creation. More than just a functional piece, it is a work of art that strikes a delicate balance between tradition and innovation.
