Large Walnut Mosaic Tray
Wood mosaic has a long history in the Levant, and it is of particular significance to artisans in Damascus. Detailed and intricate wood mosaic has now all but disappeared as artisans produce less complex designs. In Jordan, a small community of wood mosaic artisans are practicing and preserving the craft by passing their knowledge to a new generation of apprentices.
Consisting of the repetition of a single wood mosaic module - what the artisans call trunk -, this tray is finished with lacquer. Handcrafted with attention to details, this large tray is a conversation starter.
• Materials: Walnut wood and inlaid with a variety of woods such as cherry, maple and walnut
• 35cm x 3.5cm
