Copper casting has a long and illustrious history in Japan, particularly in the city of Takaoka; located in the northwestern portion of the Toyama Perfecture - roughly 450 kilometres west of Tokyo. Originally manipulated for use on temple bells, lanterns and various tea ceremony utensils, coppers' popularity has expanded over recent decades and applications are wide and commonplace throughout the globe. These contemporary copper dishes by Momentum Factory Orii stand out to me as they feature stunning finishes achieved through a balance of traditional and intricate oxidization methods - which I'm curious to see mature with heavy use. Good for organizing your keys, jewellery or loose change at the days end. Find this set of 4, available now through Nalata / Nalata.
