Kuro-mura Stationary Tray - Small

$75.00 USD
  • Introduction

    I am a small blackened brass tray. I’m a small object with a big job. I can hold precious items and keep them organized and I’ll do it with grace. Watch me age and transform right before your eyes!


  • Curator's Notes


    The classic shape and Kuro-Mura casted surface on these trays gives them an antique appearance. This traditional method of casting mixes pigments with Japanese lacquer (Urushi) giving a unique texture and sophisticated appearance. Their weight feels substantial and appropriate for daily use while the slow oxidization of the brass makes its coloration and texture look richer over many years of usage.
