Pleasingly hefty and gloriously luminous, this stunning trivet is the perfect thing for the pot at the tea ceremony, the hot brazier come tableside at the dinner party, or, because of its ingenious brassy imperviousness and sturdy little feet, to elevate the humidifier pot to the exact right height in its rightful position on top of the woodstove.
About the line: Founded in 1897, Futagami began producing beautiful brass altar fittings for Japanese Buddhist monasteries and the zen tradition continues today. Hand smelted, poured, finished, filed, and polished in the Toyama prefecture, these exceptionally elegant brass pieces are a pleasure to hold and use. The labor-intensive process, which includes molding into layers of fine-silted earth, is designed to highlight the distinctive "ihada" finish, a subtly rough surface texture that brilliantly plays up the brass' natural tendency towards use-based patina. Use these, love them, and watch them get better with age.

Crazy gorgeous! Never put this away, it's too pretty! There are little rubber grips on the bottom to keep it from sliding. And it's elevated on little feet to protect your surfaces. Very sturdy!
