Back to: Asada Workshop
The coaster is intentionally left rough and pitted and the beautiful grain of the wood is emphasised by the technique of yakisuga-ita - or gently charring the wood, which was originally used as a way of protecting and preserving the cladding on houses. This is then coated in a traditional beeswax lacquer to add another layer of lustre. Perfect as a large vase stand or bottle coaster, or can be used on it's own as a plate or tray.
