Feature: made of aged cedar wood, the try features an imperfect round shape with flowing lines. It gives out a light pleasing fragrance naturally from the wood itself. To the great extent, the organic texture of the wood and its asymmetry shape can minimize the distraction and manifest strong wabi-sabi esthetics.
Artist: The wooden tray is handmade by a craftsman, Wu Jianghai from Jingdezhen. With a long-term passion for tea and teaware, Wu quit his marketing job and devoted himself to making wooden tea set accessories. Aimed to incorporate ancient elements into modern tea-brewing, he spent a lot of time on the bunt for antique wood as materials and retaining the organic texture in the finished crafts as much as possible. To a great extent, his crafts heighten the sense of wabi-sabi to a tea ceremony, reflecting his appreciation of nature's force and a quest for a simple life.
