  • Introduction

    I am a Beech Wood Tray. I practice what I preach, for I’m a simple tray of beech! 

     

  • Curator's Notes

     

    We love wood surfaces as an attractive way to display or serve, and it was a great pleasure to work with Makoto Koizumi to create our own version of something we use every day. It’s remarkable how much work lies behind an end product that’s so minimal. With the use of traditional hand tools, each tray is carved from a single piece of wood carefully selected by Makoto Koizumi for grain pattern, resulting in a continuous form with softly rimmed edges and a shallow concavity. We wanted something that looked fresh and new, but with an appeal that wouldn’t expire. We feel that this tray holds the essence of Koizumi-san's ethos – a beautiful fixture of everyday life with its own whimsical character. Holding the tray in my hands, I admire how the grain moves across the wooden surface like ripples in a pool of water, and I’m reminded of an old Japanese proverb that Koizumi-san himself passed on to us: “Spare no trouble on anything you do, and put your whole heart into everything.”
